Each category has a specific and unique set of criteria based against five key elements.

  • Ambition - The challenge and context within which your project, person or organisation is set alongside your goals and targets whether quantitative or qualitative.
  • Outcome - The benefits realised from the point of view of patients, organisation, leadership, value creation, efficiencies and cost.
  • Spread - The dissemination of your success in terms of how your work has been picked up and replicated elsewhere.
  • Value - The creation of value from the point of view of patient satisfaction and experience, reduction in bureaucracy, time saved for staff at any level.
  • Involvement - The stakeholders buy-in and contribution toward the project initiatives and outcomes. How have the relevant staff, patients and partnerships worked together to realise the success?
