Earlier this month our customer, The City and Hackney collaborative, made up of City and Hackney ICP, North East London CCG, East London FT, The Advocacy Project and Core Art & Sport scooped up several awards at this years Health Service Journal awards. The recognition for their Digital Recovery Platform for Severe Mental Illness resulted in one win, two highly commended and one finalist position for their cross sector programme of work.
This region has focused on collaborative working with their service users to support their mental health management, through the establishment of The Digital Recovery Platform for Severe Mental Illness, providing a single place to view and share information with others involved in their own recovery journey.
This programme of work saw the collective walk away from the HSJ Value Awards in September 2021 with:
- Winner for the Digital Clinical Transformation Award
- Highly commended for the Primary Care or Community Service Redesign Initiative and the IT & Digital Innovation Award
- Finalists for the Mental Health Service Redesign Initiative
Still within its first year of going live, these awards follow on from the collaborative having already won the accolade ‘Highly Commended’ for their work in the ‘Digitising Patient Services Initiative’ category for the HSJ Awards 2020.
City and Hackney CCG is the first organisation to empower service users across North East London STP with access and control of their health records for mental health support. It is also set to become the first NHS locality, truly leading integrated care, as data is exchanged across primary, secondary/mental health services (East London NHS Foundation Trust), as well as local voluntary care organisations (The Advocacy Project and Core Arts and Sports Programme).
More details around their digital recovery platform and their partnership with Patients Know Best to create this, and reflections from Dan Burningham, Mental Health Programme Director and Breda Spillane, the programme lead for the workstream can be found here.
Once again a big congratulations to the team for their achievements.
