Health managers in East Yorkshire have been recognised for the quality of their leadership.
Key figures from Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust, which runs Hull Royal Infirmary and Castle Hill Hospital in Cottingham, have been shortlisted in three categories of the Regional NHS Leadership Recognition Awards.
The awards celebrate NHS leaders at all levels and across all professions who have improved people’s health and the public’s experience of the health service.
Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust will shortly compete for the title of NHS Board / Governing Body of the Year, whilst Chief of Workforce and OD, Jayne Adamson, now waits to hear if she will win the title of NHS Leadership Development Champion, having supported both local and national work.
Trust Chief Executive, Phil Morley, is also in the running, having been shortlisted alongside fellow NHS Chiefs Karen Jackson and Patrick Crowley, from Northern Lincolnshire and Goole Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and York Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust respectively , for their organisations’ partnership working.
“It’s great to have been recognised in this year’s NHS Leadership Awards as we feel this reflects our organisation’s willingness to make strong and, at times, courageous decisions in the interests of our patients and staff.
“One of the great things about Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust is that we find leaders exist at every level of the organisation, so many of the improvements we see are actually driven by our doctors, nurses, and other health professionals working at the frontline.
“Over the recent years we’ve been working hard to develop a ‘can do’ culture in which staff feel empowered to lead their own changes and improvements, and in doing so, we’re hoping to uncover many more potential leaders of the future.”
Winners will be announced at a ceremony to be held at the Royal Armouries in Leeds on Wednesday 13 November.
