ERS Medical shortlisted for prestigious HSJ Value in Healthcare Award
ERS Medical has been shortlisted in the Value and Improvement in Transportation and Logistics category at the 2014 Health Service Journal (HSJ) Value in Healthcare Awards, to be held on 23 September at the Grosvenor House Hotel, London.
As one of the UK’s largest independent healthcare service providers, ERS Medical’s entry details the non-emergency patient transport services provided to Western Locality (North, East & West Devon) Clinical Commissioning Group, the resulting improvements made to the patient journey and overall efficiencies delivered to the Trust.
The shortlisted organisations, chosen from a record number of entries, will now complete presentations and interviews to a specific judging panel made up senior and influential figures from the health sector. These include:
• Charles Alessi, Chairman, National Association of Primary Care
• Professor Jonathan Kay, Clinical Informatics Director, NHS England
• Val Moore, Implementation Programme Director, NICE
• Michael Macdonnell, Head of Strategy, NHS England
The new HSJ Value in Healthcare Awards seeks to recognise and reward outstanding efficiency and improvement by the NHS. A successor to the HSJ Efficiency Awards, the Value in Healthcare Awards continues to recognise excellent use of resources. But they also seek out examples of demonstrable improvement in outcomes, both within back office functions and clinical initiatives.
ERS Medical said: “We are very proud to be shortlisted for the prestigious HSJ Awards amongst the record number of entries this year. As an organisation, we are driven by patient care and being shortlisted is added recognition of the time, effort and diligence that the teams have put into looking after each of our contracts and patients.”
