A Norwich hospital trust has been short-listed for two national nursing awards.
The Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (NNUH) is a finalist in two of the Nursing Times Awards, which profile good practice and innovations that have been implemented by front line staff and celebrate organisations’ commitment to achieving excellence.
It has been short-listed for the Excellence in Supporting Staff Wellbeing category for breaking down barriers to mental health in the work place, and for the Learning Disability Nursing category for a project to improve care for patients with learning disabilities and autism.
The trust, which runs the N&N and Cromer Hospital, is one of 132 finalists in 17 categories which include a range of specialities including cancer, respiratory, learning disabilities and mental health.
The winners of the 2012 awards will be announced at a ceremony in London on October 31.
