Spire Healthcare shortlisted for four Independent Healthcare Awards

02.07.2014

We are pleased to announce that Spire has been shortlisted for four Independent Healthcare Awards at the annual awards ceremony run by Laing and Buisson, one of the leading sources of healthcare intelligence. The awards ceremony will take place on 7 October at the Lancaster Hotel, London and is the main awards ceremony for the private healthcare sector.

The awards we’ve been shortlisted for and the reasons behind the jury’s choice are:

Healthcare Outcomes: Clinical Services Team, Spire Healthcare

Spire’s investment and focus on clinical standards and quality are central to our reputation and drive our success. We deliver excellent clinical outcomes across a range of indicators, reflecting the commitment and dedication of clinical teams across Spire to improving patient care pathways. For example, the latest PROMs data published by the Department of Health demonstrates that patients undergoing a hip or knee replacement at a Spire hospital report better than average health outcomes. Similarly, in 2013, there were no reported cases of MRSA bacteraemia across our hospitals.

Excellence in Risk Management: Mr Rhidian Morgan-Jones at Spire Cardiff Hospital

A new patient centred relationship map was introduced by Mr Morgan-Jones, an orthopaedic consultant at Spire Cardiff Hospital, to help all departments and teams collaborate effectively for each patient to help ensure they receive the best possible care. This map helps to ensure that arrangements are made for all eventualities and improve the planning of complex orthopaedic cases before admission.

Best use of technology: Debs Scott and Ellie Bentley at Spire Murrayfield Hospital Edinburgh

Debs Scott and Ellie Bentley from Spire Murrayfield Hospital in Edinburgh introduced the Ardeo eMDT workflow system to facilitate multi-disciplinary team (MDT) discussions for patients with breast cancer in 2013. This enabled to streamline the process for MDT meetings and helped to ensure patients are placed on the most appropriate care pathway for their condition.

Innovation: Perform at St George’s Park.

Perform at St George’s Park started a new partnership with Michael Johnson Performance, the US-based performance training brand founded by four-time Olympic Champion and current 400m World Record holder, Michael Johnson last year. This partnership saw a new range of performance training services become available to players and athletes of all abilities at St. George’s Park, including bespoke residential camps designed for nurturing the talent of young people.
