Julian nominates York Hospital and Vale of York NHS teams for NHS Parliamentary Awards

September 3, 2020

Julian has put forward the heart failure team at York Hospital NHS Trust, alongside the Yorkshire and Humber Patient Safety Collaborative and the Primary Care Covid Support Hub from Vale of York NHS, as entrants in this year’s NHS Parliamentary Awards.

This contest allows MPs to highlight best practice and innovation from their local areas, ensuring this work gets the attention it deserves from the national NHS leadership, and dedicated NHS teams are recognised for their commitment to improving patient care.

York’s heart failure team have been nominated for the ‘Excellence in Urgent and Emergency Care Award’, while the Patient Safety Collaborative and Covid Support Hub have been proposed by Julian for the ‘Care and Compassion’ and ‘Excellence in Primary Care’ categories respectively. The national shortlist will be announced in November, and the awards ceremony is due to take place at the House of Commons next July.

After submitting his nominations, Julian said: “As a lifelong local resident, with a young family, and elderly parents living close to York, I know how vital our local NHS services are across the full range of health specialisms, and it is vital that exceptional work and the pioneering of new procedures that enhance patient care are properly recognised.

This is especially important at a time when our health service has risen to the greatest challenge in its history, and has continued to delivery a wide spectrum of care with the additional burden of the greatest public health emergency in living memory.

It is essential that the efforts of York’s NHS staff during this incredibly tough period are properly acknowledged and rewarded, and highlighting the best practice of our local NHS on a national stage through these Awards is a good way to start.

I wish all 3 nominated teams the very best of luck.”
