On the 20th March 2019, we were delighted to be awarded the prestigious HSJ Partnership Award in their “Medical Software, Systems and Technology” category. The award was for our work to digitally transform the medical staff bank at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital Foundation Trust (ChelWest). We were also chuffed to also receive a Highly Commended for the same project in the “Workforce Innovation” category.
The HSJ Partnership Awards showcase the most effective partnerships between the private and third sector and the NHS; collaborations that are making a substantial difference delivering value for money and improving patients’ lives through sector leading innovation and exceptional dedication to top quality service.
Creating meaningful, impactful and empathetic partnerships with NHS Trusts is at the heart of the Patchwork mission. Without such partnerships, we cannot hope to make an impact. That’s why we were so honoured to win these accolades.
It was a privilege to collect these awards alongside the team from Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, who were our first clinical partner when we started Patchwork. They have been pivotal in our journey as we’ve gone from having no more than an idea about how we could make a difference to building and rolling out a product which is saving vast amounts of money and changing lives across the NHS.
We cannot wait to build on our successes with ChelWest and the other seven Trusts we are collaborating with as we continue to build an approach to NHS staffing that truly works for everyone.
