Learning from Excellence Awards

This has been Solent NHS Trusts third round of Learning from Excellence Awards, and we have presented awards to 127 winners.

All nominations including colleagues, staff and community members were all presented with a star award containing a gift and certificate.

Out of the 127 winners, 15 community partners received the award. These patients, people and volunteers have worked alongside Solent NHS Trust to help us learn and improve. They have given up their time, energy and shared their lived experience. The words ‘thank you’ isn’t enough but the difference that can be made by working together with our communities is invaluable.

With a global pandemic and being the festive period, it felt more important than ever to recognise the greatness of those staff who have helped Solent improve, who have done something great or have taken the extra step to make a difference. The awards created a heart-warming recognition for these acts of kindness and differences they make. Those receiving the awards said:

About the author

I am the Head of People Participation for the Academy of Research and Improvement.

I am a physiotherapist and worked across community services and specialised in the field of neurology. I have an interest in personalised care and how services work alongside people on ‘what matter to them’.

In 2015, I completed a Trainee Consultant Practitioner in Neurological Rehabilitation secondment through Health Education England - Wessex. This programme developed my knowledge, skills and confidence in the areas of clinical expertise, leadership, service improvement and education. During this secondment my passion for quality improvement grew and I have led projects on improving positioning of the stroke arm; specialist Parkinson nurse demand and capacity and understanding the benefit of vocational rehabilitation through co-production. This has led to awards and recognition for my improvement projects.
