Andrew Gwynne, MP for Denton and Reddish, has today congratulated Tameside and Glossop Integrated Care NHS Foundation Trust following the NHS Parliamentary Awards and their nomination in the Future NHS Category. This category recognises pioneering NHS teams which are building for the future.
The NHS Parliamentary Awards is run in conjunction with NHS England and enables MPs to nominate their local NHS and social care staff, volunteers and carers. Tameside and Glossop Integrated Care was nominated for the award by Gwynne and neighbouring MP for Stalybridge and Hyde, Jonathan Reynolds. Gwynne and Reynolds attended the ceremony with Liam Brierley – Senior Information Manager for Medicine, Urgent Care, Diagnostics and Community Services – representing the Trust.
Tameside and Glossop Integrated Trust serves a community of 250,000 people across Tameside and Glossop and aims to improve health outcomes by collaborating with local health and care partners.
The District Nursing Team and the Corporate Information Team within the trust were applauded for ensuring their service was fit for the future and for developing data dashboards to support clinical staff with improved visibility of caseloads. The District Nursing Complexity and Dependency Tool enabled clinical staff to facilitate safer and more effective management of patients in the community.
The Tameside and Glossop trust were nominated as regional champions within the North West, but just missed out on the overall category award which went to Sunrise Neonatal Team at North Middlesex University Hospital.
Speaking after attending the awards ceremony which took place today in Central London, Gwynne said:
“I am so pleased that the hard work of staff in Tameside and Glossop Integrated Care NHS Foundation Trust has been recognised at these awards. I want to thank the staff from the bottom of my heart for the incredible work they have done over the last year.
The District Nursing Complexity and Dependency Tool is such an innovative project and deserves national recognition. As we recover from the pandemic, it’s more important than ever that we give clinicians the tools to provide the right care at the right time to ensure the best outcome for patients.
Just to be shortlisted for this award is an achievement in itself. There were over 700 entries for this highly competitive category.
I’d also like to take a moment to congratulate all the other nominees across all categories at the NHS Parliamentary Awards. I felt very honoured to be invited to the ceremony, and it was great to see the unbelievable work that is going on across the entire NHS.”
