Two pioneering healthcare experts from Humber NHS Foundation Trust have been shortlisted for prestigious regional awards.
The NHS Leadership Awards celebrate ground breaking work from healthcare professionals who have ultimately improved people’s wellbeing and their experience of the NHS.
Humber NHS Foundation Trust’s Patrick Scott and Professor Esme Moniz-Cook have both been shortlisted for awards and will join other innovative NHS professionals at the regional ceremony in November. The winners in each category will go on to represent the Yorkshire and Humber region in the national leadership awards next year.
Patrick, who is General Manager of the Trust’s Forensic Services was nominated for the NHS Leader of Patient Inclusivity of the Year for his work in helping patients become more actively involved in decisions about their care and in the services they receive. Patrick was recently awarded The Chief Executive’s ‘Making a Difference’ award at the Humber NHS Foundation Trust’s annual staff awards.
Trust Chief Executive David Snowdon said:
“It is fantastic to see Patrick’s success in The Humber Centre receive more regional recognition, especially when you consider it has been delivered in one of the most challenging of clinical environments.
“The work in the Humber Centre includes programmes of art, literacy and perhaps most noteworthy, the inclusive football league. All of these initiatives have required commitment, personal drive and most important of all, vision and leadership.”
Consultant clinical psychologist Professor Esme Moniz-Cook has been shortlisted for NHS Quality Champion/Innovator of the year for leading the way in the early detection of dementia and cutting edge psycho-social interventions and ground breaking research in the Humber NHS Foundation Trust’s Memory Clinic and community memory services.
“The research led by Esme is making an enormous difference to the lives of dementia patients and their families not just in Hull and the East Riding of Yorkshire but in other parts of the country,” explained David Snowdon. “A diagnosis of dementia is devastating for a patient and their loved ones but identifying the condition early can improve their quality of life and enables the person with dementia to plan their own future care while they are still able to make important decisions.”
