HEFMA Awards

HEFMA is thrilled to announce the nominees for its prestigious awards for 2021.

The format has been changed for this year to enable us to recognise achievements across the entire country in what has been an incredibly difficult period for all working within the NHS. 

There will be one award winner from each Branch. One overall, national winner will then be selected from these Branch winners.

The HEFMA Awards are not only a really important way of rewarding people, but also of gaining national recognition for the hard work and achievements of individuals and teams across the country. 

Nominees for the 2021 HEFMA Awards

Our 2021 Award nominees are:

• Birmingham Community Healthcare NHS FT

• Black Country Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust

• Herefordshire and Worcestershire Health & Care NHS Trust

• Lancashire and South Cumbria Integrated Care System

• Leeds Teaching Hospital

• Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust

• Mid-Cheshire Hospitals NHS Trust

• Norfolk Community Health & Care NHS Trust

• QE Facilities (Gateshead Health NHS FT)

• Synchronicity Care Limited

• The Hillingdon Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust

• The Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust

• University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust

• Yorkshire Ambulance Service

The award winners will be announced at a virtual ceremony broadcasting via twitter from 10.30am on September 21. This is a format that worked very successfully last year and enables everyone to attend at a time when formal gatherings for lots of people are still quite difficult. 

Good luck to everyone.

Our 2020 Awards Winners

Individual Development

David Carter, Co-ordinator Maintenance at Worcester Health & Care NHS Trust.

David has worked to develop the quality of the data from the CAFM system, transform the relationship between the trades and record-keeping and improve understanding between the management team and trades.

 

People Development

Mike Hill, Head of Estates at Liverpool University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

Difficulties with recruiting quality engineering and trades staff as a result of skills shortages led the Trust to introduce its own programme for 'home-grown' talent by upskilling existing staff, recruiting and developing apprentices and trainees.

 

Efficiency & Improvement

Jon Byrne, Environmental Manager at the Mersey Care NHS Foundation Trust.

Jon has developed a zero-cost tool to monitor clinical waste pre-acceptance audits, improving productivity by recording data in real-time and leading to greater efficiencies in the Trust's waste streams.

 

Project of the Year

The Derriford Winter ED Scheme 'Big Build' at the University Hospitals Plymouth NHS Trust.

This project extended the Paediatric Emergency Department and improved the Resuscitation area, providing accommodation for staff and patients that is fit for purpose, offers enhanced security and calming features for more distressed patients, such as a Hurricane tube and Magic Carpet.

 

Team of the Year

Group Catering, Estates and Facilities Teams at The Northern Care Alliance (NCA) NHS Group.

The teams have delivered significant and sustainable service improvement for staff, patients and visitors from the Jewish faith community by establishing Shabbos Rooms to provide 24/7 access to facilities for rest as well as hot and cold Kosher food.

 

Leader of the Year

Stuart Windsor, Director of Estates & Facilities at University Hospitals Plymouth NHS Trust.

Stuart was recognised for his inclusive, consultative and inspirational leadership style which is driving service improvement through a clear and common vision that is shared and has been developed, organically, by the whole team. He is highly respected throughout the Trust and is as much a mentor as a manager.
