Wins across the North East London Integrated Care System at the HSJ Partnership Awards


 

Staff from NEL CCG and partners celebrate their success at the HSJ Partnership Awards ceremony.

It was a big night for the North East London Integrated Care System (NEL ICS) at the HSJ Partnership Awards, with a win for a North East London CCG diabetes programme that is tackling health inequalities and a commendation for a Barts Health Trust project.

The innovative diabetes education programme that is supporting people in Barking and Dagenham took home the trophy for Most Impactful Project Addressing Health Inequalities. The award was given for the ‘Reducing Variation of Care and Outcomes Particularly as it Relates to Socioeconomic, Cultural or Racial Determinants’ project, which aims to reduce health inequalities by taking a person centred approach to providing diabetes care through one-to-one phone and video sessions with diabetes specialists and dieticians from the local community, educational materials and via an NHS-approved smartphone app. 

Zina Etheridge, Chief Executive Officer Designate of the North East London Health and Care Partnership and NEL ICS lead said: “Congratulations to the CCG and Barts Health teams for this fantastic recognition of the innovative and integrated partnership working that is taking place between health and care organisations across north east London for the benefit of local people.

After such a challenging two years I could not be prouder of everyone across our north east London integrated care system who has been involved in these award-winning projects.”
