The complete transformation of operations across the country’s health and care settings throughout covid-19 pandemic has highlighted just how much work can be required to ensure patients remain infection-free.
This award seeks to recognise the programmes, teams and initiatives integral to reducing risk and creating safe care pathways across health and care settings, both through the prevention of infection and the effective control of it when it does occur. Judges are keen to see the innovative approaches taken in applying national guidelines, find out how teams are developing enhanced standards and covid-secure environments for staff, or learn how covid-green sites have been developed and maintained.
Entries are welcomed from all NHS organisations and public sector health and social care bodies. Judges are looking for projects and initiatives which can demonstrably show holistic approaches to covid-19 prevention and control.
