Joining the Dots shortlisted for Health Service Journal Award
Avon and Wiltshire Mental Health Partnership NHS Trust
has been shortlisted for the Health Service Journal (HSJ) Award for
Innovation in Mental Health for 'Joining the Dots', its
collaborative project with Otsuka Health Solutions.
The Joining the Dots team have co-created a selection of digital
solutions with teams of dedicated service users, carers and staff
in Bristol Mental Health (BMH). This software aims to help mental
health services to work in an integrated way, using health data and
information to improve care for the people who need it most.
"Thank you to everyone who has been involved in the project so
far. Everyone has worked really hard to improve care for those with
mental health needs. This achievement is well-deserved!" says Will
Hall, System Clinical Leader, BMH.
Now in its 35th year, the annual HSJ awards recognise and
celebrate NHS achievements. The Joining the Dots team have already
completed a written submission and will now deliver a presentation
and be interviewed by a panel of NHS leaders.
The winners of the HSJ Awards will be announced at a ceremony on
23 November 2016. Good luck Joining the Dots!
