Andrew Gwynne, MP for Denton and Reddish, has expressed his delight at the shortlisting of local teams for the NHS Parliamentary Awards 2020.
Gwynne and neighbouring MP Jonathan Reynolds (Stalybridge and Hyde) nominated Tameside and Glossop Integrated Care NHS Foundation Trust for the Future NHS Award for the District Nursing Complexity and Dependency Tool.
The Future NHS Award recognises a person or team that has successfully trialled and embedded change to make better use of data and digital technology, provide more convenient access to services and information for patients and improve support for staff.
The District Nursing Complexity and Dependency Tool was developed by the District Nursing and Corporate Information Teams to ensure that staff with the right skillset can provide care at the right time to ensure the best outcome for patients.
The Tool was the regional winner for the North West in the Future NHS Award category and will now compete with teams in six other regions for the national prize. The award ceremony will take place on Wednesday 7 July 2021 in the House of Commons.
Andrew Gwynne said:
“I’m absolutely delighted that the amazing work of all of those at Tameside and Glossop Trust involved in developing the District Nursing Complexity and Dependency Tool has been given national recognition.
“It has been an incredibly difficult year for the NHS and so it’s fantastic to be able to recognise some of the innovative work going on within the health service and thank our hardworking NHS staff.
“Congratulations again to everyone involved and here’s hoping that they win the national award next July!”
