Kaleidoscope, Edge Health and Cambridgeshire and Peterborough STP win Best Consultancy Partnership with the NHS
Kaleidoscope Health and Care, Edge Health and Cambridgeshire and Peterborough sustainability and transformation partnership (STP) won the category at the HSJ Partnership Awards for their work establishing digital diabetes care services.
The HSJ Partnership Awards recognise outstanding contributions to healthcare in what has been an exceptional and challenging period across the sector.
Following a rigorous judging process, Kaleidoscope and Edge were given the award in recognition of their innovative and collaborative partnership with Cambridgeshire and Peterborough sustainability and transformation partnership (STP).
The award winning collaboration supported the delivery of a digital service to improve diabetes remission and care. Kaleidoscope worked with Edge Health, staff and patients to identify the key areas where they could create real change. As a result of their work, three primary care networks improved their performance and more than 400 additional patients received care. The model has now been rolled out to a further four areas.
Standing out among tough competition, the project was selected for its ambition, vision and the demonstrable positive impact on patient and staff experiences. The judges had this to say about the project:
“The enthusiasm of all involved in the partnership was infectious and really apparent. There is potential for it to be scalable across other health systems and other long term conditions. Qualitative data for local populations gathered and captured helped understanding how to remove barriers for practices in terms of communication and supporting patients with appropriate digital mediums.”
Dave West, Health Service Journal’s Deputy Editor congratulated the teams on their successful win:
“This year’s entrants displayed a varied range of projects and partnerships, all working together to benefit the nation’s healthcare sector. The winners were chosen after considerable deliberation on many success factors, but primarily on the innovativeness and commitment to healthcare.”
Clare Allcock who led the project at Kaleidoscope said:
“A lot of what we do is about relationships and helping people work better as teams, organisations and systems. So it is particularly lovely to get this award working in collaboration with brilliant people at Edge and Cambridge and Peterborough. This was a really rewarding project but this award is the icing on a fantastic cake.”
