Hospital trust shortlisted twice at national awards

Posted onPosted on 31st Aug

Sherwood Forest Hospitals Trust, which runs King’s Mill Hospital, Sutton; Mansfield Community Hospital; and Newark Hospital has been shortlisted for two honours at the national HSJ Awards in November.

Proud2bOps and the trust have been shortlisted for the HSJ Partnership Award, while the trust’s Climate Action initiative has been shortlisted in the Environmental Sustainability category

Proud2bOps is a national network of operational managers and leaders working within frontline health and care organisations — community, acute, primary, independent, voluntary and ambulance sectors.

It offers operational professionals the opportunity to come together and share best practice whilst developing themselves as leaders.

Hosted by Sherwood Forest Hospitals Trust and led by its director of culture and improvement, Emma Challans, the award nomination recognises the power of organisations working together to solve some of the most difficult issues across the NHS.

Sherwood’s Climate Action Team was shortlisted for its work at the trust and within the local community, and for promoting a greener future for colleagues and patients, including the health and wellbeing benefits from a physical, and mental health perspective.

Helena Clements, consultant paediatrician and climate action team lead, said: “The Climate Action Team has worked so hard to put climate on the map and at the forefront of colleagues’ minds, to support a low carbon community for our children and grandchildren locally, and globally.

“It has been a tremendous boost to our Climate Action group, and to Sherwood colleagues, to be shortlisted.”
