The HSJ Awards has announced the finalists of the Workforce category, which is proudly sponsored by NHS Professionals.
The winners of the 2014 HSJ Awards will be announced at a prestigious ceremony on 19 November at the Grosvenor House Hotel, London.
The Workforce award is about recognising innovation in workforce development. Judges were looking for new strategic approaches to workforce planning to improve quality and productivity. They wanted to see organisations rethinking roles, breaking down the traditional barriers to create an adaptable workforce that delivers quality and efficiency. They wanted to see initiatives that develop not just the existing workforce and its talents, but look for new ways to bring people into the NHS – getting good people into hard-to-fill entry-level posts.
The judges have narrowed the Workforce category down to 11 entries; take a look at their profiles below to find out why they were nominated:
Health Education England (HEE) with East Kent Hospitals University Foundation NHS Trust (EKH) – Establishing hot ‘emergency-based’ & cold ‘ward-based’ teams to enhance the trainee experience, improving patient care at weekends
Good luck to all of the finalists!
