This week, our teams came together to celebrate their hard work and quality improvement (QI) projects over the past twelve months.

To open the event, colleagues from across the organisation presented posters highlighting QI projects they had implemented over the past year. QI is an important part of what our teams do and we encourage colleagues at all levels to develop initiatives that improve patient outcomes and create a better patient experience.

We then moved into the staff celebration portion of the event, opened by Northumbria Healthcare CEO Sir Jim Mackey. NPC’s Managing Director David Hedgcock handed out honours to some of our colleagues and teams who have gone above and beyond over the last year. The shortlisting process was incredibly difficult with a huge number of fantastic nominations. Congratulations to everyone who won an award, was shortlisted and received a nomination.
