“These awards are dedicated to the dominating challenge facing the NHS – how to improve care quality and efficiency within a tightening financial budget. I’d argue that the work we celebrate tonight offers the best chance for the NHS to meet Simon Steven’s definition of success during the next two years, which was to deliver on the 10-point efficiency plan included in the Next steps on the NHS Five Year Forward View.
…and on that basis he should feel very encouraged. For the number and quality of entries to this year’s Value in Healthcare Awards are the most impressive to date. We received over 400 entries – from every region and from every type of NHS organisation.
That the NHS is able to continue to innovate while under such historic pressure is a tribute to its resilience and, in particular, to the efforts of the people sitting in this room.’’
