Improvements in local healthcare have led to NHS Hull Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) being named as finalists for two national awards.
The CCG has been shortlisted for the coveted Health Service Journal ‘CCG of the Year’ award and is in the running for the NHS Regional Leadership Awards ‘Governing Body of the Year’ for the Yorkshire and Humber area.
The nominations come following the CCG’s first year of creating a Healthier Hull; which has seen a number of CCG led innovative projects and partnerships that are already benefiting people living in the city.
Speaking of the ‘CCG of the Year’ nomination Emma Latimer, NHS Hull CCG Chief Officer said:
“It is an honour to have been nominated for CCG of the year, especially as we are still at the beginning of our journey of creating a Healthier Hull. We do things differently and can already see the impact our work, such as the Healthier Hull Community Fund, is having on the local population.”
“We see the importance in improving both the health and aspirations of the people living in Hull and that is why we are already working towards our Hull 2020 vision; working with our partners as a single system to ensure a better future for the people of Hull.”
The Hull 2020 Transformation Programme featured prominently in the ‘CCG of the Year’ award nomination. Hull 2020 brings together nine organisations from across the city to work together better for the people of Hull. The partners have shown commitment to the vision of working in a way which will not only better enable the people in Hull to improve their own health, wellbeing and future, but also promises to engage and communicate with local communities in a way which has not been seen before in the city. The award nomination recognises NHS Hull CCG as the driving force behind Hull 2020 and the outstanding commitment from all of the partner organisations.
The CCG have also been named as finalists in the NHS Regional Leadership Awards ‘Governing Body of the Year’ for the Yorkshire and Humber area.
Speaking of the ‘Governing Body of the Year’ nomination Emma Latimer, NHS Hull CCG Chief Officer added:
“Being a finalist in this particular category is going to be great for both us as a CCG, and Hull. It brings the recognition that we need to attract the best GPs to our Hull 2020 GP Recruitment Scheme, who can work with us to ensure a better future for the people of Hull. Going forward Hull 2020 provides the opportunity to be innovative in our approach, being equipped with a high quality, enthusiastic workforce is imperative to this.”
The results of the awards are due to be announced in November and December, with the CCG hoping the national recognition will have a positive impact for the whole of Hull.
