Shortlisted for the 2022 HSJ Partnership Awards
gbpartnerships group are delighted to announce that alongside Cheshire and Merseyside Health & Care Partnership and Cheshire East Council, they have been shortlisted for the Environmental Sustainability Project of the Year at the HSJ Partnership Awards 2022, recognising their outstanding contribution to healthcare – in what has been an exceptional and challenging period across the sector.
Despite the demanding circumstances of the past 2 years, over 190 entries have been received for this year’s HSJ Partnership Awards, with 123 projects making it to the final shortlist. The volume and standards of applications has been a true testament to those health and social care staff, who continue to push outstanding work and transformational projects across the sector.
The judging panel was once again made up of a diverse range of highly influential and respected figures within the healthcare community, including Dr Matt Aiello (National Programmes Lead, Education Reform, Health Education England); Dr Elena Bechberger (National Programme Director – LVHC Programme, NHS England and NHS Improvement); Claire Igoe (Head of Environmental Sustainability - Manchester University FT) and Vinice Thomas (Director of Nursing and Quality, NHS England and NHS Improvement).
Following the intense and in-depth judging process, gbpartnerships group, Cheshire and Merseyside Health & Care Partnership and Cheshire East Council’s joint award application was shortlisted, ahead of the official awards ceremony to be held on the 24th March.
Standing out amongst tough competition from hundreds of other exemplary applicants, the partnership’s collaborative approach to sustainability has been selected based on their ambition, visionary spirit and the demonstrable positive impact. The tri-party team is working to ensure the principles of sustainability and social value - people and planet in harmony - are embedded across the Partnership. Based on these principles, the aim is to deliver an ethical framework of behaviours, resulting in long term behavioural changes as to how people use and view the NHS. Through working with colleagues across the Partnership (the ICS) they are aiming to ensure behavioural change can occur and people can change the way they currently access NHS (and wider) services. Becky Jones, gbpartnerships group Head of Corporate Social Responsibility and Sustainability commented:
“We are delighted to have been shortlisted for this award alongside Cheshire and Merseyside Health and Care Partnership and Cheshire East Council, recognising the collaborative efforts and dedication of our staff members over the last 12 months to successfully implement a collaborative approach to ensure the principles of sustainability - people and planet in harmony - are embedded across the Partnership. We are committed to delivering improved outcomes, and to be chosen among the other incredible nominees is a wonderful achievement. This nomination has been a tremendous boost to staff across the three organisations and I am sure it will bolster our continued efforts to improve our services.”
