Gateshead shortlisted for major award

Posted on Mon, 03/09/2018

Gateshead has been shortlisted for two prestigious awards that recognise the very best in healthcare and services to NHS patients.

The organisation has been shortlisted in two categories of the 2018 HSJ Awards - the world’s largest healthcare awards programme.

QE Gateshead has been shortlisted as Provider Trust of the year, while the Gateshead Care Partnership (which brings together the NHS, council and local GPs) has been shortlisted for Improved Partnerships between Health and Local Government.

Chairman Julia Hickey said: “This is a fantastic achievement for everyone involved and offers some real recognition for all the hard work by our staff and close partners in health and social care. Every day NHS teams across Gateshead are delivering vital services to the public both in hospital and out in the community, so to be shortlisted for these two awards is testament to the commitment and dedication of all our staff.

“I think everyone in Gateshead should be proud of the high quality care that we’re providing to patients day in, day out at a very challenging time for the NHS. We’ve put aside organisational boundaries to work much more closely with our partners by putting patients, and their needs, at the heart of everything we do.”
