Health and care teams from across the country gathered for the 2022 Health Service Journal (HSJ) Awards on November 17, 2022.

The awards are held annually to celebrate the teams and the people whose work is transforming health and care for the better. They are regarded as the 'health service Oscars'.

ELFT and partners took to the stage to receive the following awards:

  • The Provider Collaboration of the Year was awarded to the North Central and East London CAMHS Provider Collaborative (NCEL CAMHS), which commissions and provides CAMHS inpatient services.
    Collaborative partners are ELFT, Barnet, Enfield and Haringey Mental Health NHS Trust, North East London NHS Foundation Trust, Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust and Whittington Health NHS Trust

    Dr Mohit Venkataram, ELFT Director of Commercial Development, said: “We are incredibly proud to accept this award on behalf of colleagues across North Central and East London who work tirelessly together and with other partners to develop safe and quality care for children and young people.” 
  • The Place-Based Partnership Award was won by the Alliance Model of Dementia Care From Diagnosis to End of Life which supports patients in City and Hackney (C&H)
    The integrated dementia service in C&H is a collaborative effort involving the City and Hackney Place Based Partnership, NHS North East London, ELFT, Homerton Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust, Alzheimer’s Society, London Borough of Hackney and City of London Corporation.

    "This award demonstrates the value of the Dementia Alliance and shows how, when services work well together, people living with dementia and their carers receive much improved care and support,” said Dean Henderson, Borough Director for City & Hackney. 
  • The Workforce Initiative of the Year was awarded to the Clinical Associate in Psychology (CAP) programme provided in partnership by ELFT, Essex Partnership University Foundation Trust (EPUT) and Sheffield Health and Social Care Foundation Trust (SHSC)

    “We are thrilled that through the CAP programme the psychology professions have been able to take a lead in demonstrating how apprenticeships can successfully bring innovation, diversity, inclusivity and stability to our workforce," said Dr Ravi Rana, ELFT Director of Therapies.

ELFT was also shortlisted four other times, including in the Trust of the Year category.

“Working in collaboration and across traditional boundaries is the key to providing integrated care and for us to deliver our mission of improving the quality of life for all we serve,” said Chief Executive Paul Calaminus. 

“I am tremendously proud of all colleagues and partners shortlisted and those named as winners at the HSJ Awards, which celebrate all things good about the NHS.”
