NHS Castle Point and Rochford CCG shortlisted for prestigious national award

NHS Castle Point and Rochford Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) has been shortlisted as ‘CCG of the Year’ in the 2016 Health Service Journal (HSJ) Awards.

The HSJ Awards is the largest celebration of excellence in the UK healthcare, highlighting the most innovative and successful people and projects in the sector.

Dr Kashif Siddiqui, Chair for NHS Castle Point & Rochford CCG said:

“To be shortlisted as one of the top CCGs in the country is fantastic news.  This is testament to the hard work of our staff, governing body and partners.

“We are a relatively small organisation but there is no doubt that we have punched above our weight in terms of our achievements.  There are still many challenges, but we are clearly on the right path and for this to be recognised nationally is welcome news.”

Alastair McLellan, Editor, HSJ, said: "With the NHS experiencing a tough time as funding fails to keep up with demand, the HSJ Awards are once again the best reminder of the excellence the service is capable of. Taken together the entries to the HSJ Awards represent work which, directly or indirectly, has saved thousands of lives and enhanced many times that number."

Shortlisted entrants demonstrated outstanding practice and innovation that helped to improve patient care and enhance value and efficiency and have overcome fierce competition to be judged as among UK healthcare’s leading exponents.

The shortlisted organisations will now complete presentations and interviews to a judging panel made up of senior and influential figures from the health sector.

These include:

  • Sir David Dalton, Chief Executive, Salford Royal Foundation Trust
  • Professor Steve Field, Chief Inspector of General Practice, CQC
  • Jonathan Fielden, Director of Specialised Commissioning, NHS England
  • Sir Malcolm Grant, Chair, NHS England
  • Ian Dodge, National Director of Commissioning Strategy, NHS England

The awards will be presented out at a ceremony on 23 November 2016 at Intercontinental O2, London.
