_00 Patient Safety Awards finalist banner

The Teddington Memorial Hospital inpatient ward and the 'Always Events' team are finalists in the Health Service Journal Patient Safety Awards 2019.
The ward team have been shortlisted for a Patient Safety in the Community Award for ‘Improving care for patients at risk of falls at Teddington Memorial Hospital’.

The team, supported by NHS Improvement, led a successful project which reduced falls by 85% - significantly reducing the liklihood of patients being harmed and maximising their independence. 
The Always Events team – Quality and Clinical Excellence and Clinical Services, in partnership with Spark the Difference – have been shortlisted for no fewer than three awards. 

  • Quality Improvement Initiative of the Year for ‘Beyond systems and processes: improving patient safety by focusing on what matters to patients’
  • Patient Safety Organisation of the Year for ‘Our Journey to Outstanding: Committing to what matters to patients’
  • End of Life Care Award for ‘Removing the Elephant in the Room: Supporting staff to talk about death and dying’.

The winners will be announced at Manchester Central Convention Complex on 2 July 2019.

Congratulations to all the amazing HRCH colleagues who were involved in these projects. Good luck!
