The Health Service Journal (HSJ) Awards, is the largest celebration of healthcare excellence in the UK, highlighting the most innovative and successful people and projects in the sector.

By shining a spotlight on cutting-edge innovations and best practice, the awards give impetus to improving the quality of health care in the UK.

After review by esteemed judging panels, made up of senior and influential figures from the health sector, Inclusion, South Staffordshire and Shropshire Health Care Foundation Trust won in recognition of their outstanding work.

From the judges:

This project has saved lives. They have seized an opportunity to reach out to people at risk, empowered a wide range of people to intervene and have managed to connect to people who are often on the margins of public services and communities. Alastair McLellan, Editor, HSJ, said:

In this year of unremitting toil and increasing pressure, the entries to the HSJ Awards have once again touched record levels. Becoming an HSJ Awards finalist has never been tougher or more worthy of celebration.

The excellence represented this evening demonstrates the NHS remains both brave and bold in meeting the challenges that rising demand presents for all modern healthcare systems. It also underlines the ambition found in ever sector and region of the NHS to improve patient outcomes, experience and safety.
