Finalists for the Health Service Journal’s Value in Healthcare Awards have been announced and the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital has been nominated in three categories.

The older people’s medicine (OPM) team has been nominated in the acute service redesign category for their service innovation which has focussed on enhancing the care provided for Norfolk’s frail and older patients.

An innovative project in the urology department helped secure a nomination in the improving the value of surgical services category.

Within the training and development category, the NNUH excellence together programme, which is a guided learning programme for hospital staff, focusing on improvement and change methodology, has been nominated.

Richard Parker, NNUH chief operating officer, congratulated the teams involved. He said: “These nominations are testament to the innovative and forward thinking nature of the way we do things at NNUH. Our teams consistently rise to the challenge of finding new ways to improve the excellent care provided in our hospital and I’d like to thank them for their focus on finding new systems techniques and processes which benefit our patients.”

The final round of judging starts on April 4, with the overall winners announced at a ceremony in Manchester in June.
