Academy shortlisted for national award

The Frimley Leadership and Improvement Academy, launched to develop and support great leaders across health and social care services across the Frimley Health and Care ICS, has been shortlisted for a prestigious national award.

The academy is one of nine entries in the running to be named System Leadership Initiative of the Year at the HSJ Awards 2019.

It was selected for its ambition, vision and most importantly for the positive impact its work has had on patient and staff experiences in the health and social care sectors.

The academy was launched in May 2018 to develop a network of leaders and enable them to ensure their services are continually improving and working together and helping local people to improve their health and wellbeing.

Dr Peter Bibawy, Lead for the Frimley Leadership and Improvement Academy and Clinical Chair for North East Hampshire and Farnham Clinical Commissioning Group, said: “We are delighted to have been shortlisted for this award, recognising the collective efforts of colleagues across the Integrated Care System.  We are committed to delivering improved outcomes for our patients and to be chosen among the other impressive nominees is a wonderful achievement. 

“This nomination will be a tremendous boost to the Frimley Leadership and Improvement Academy and Frimley Integrated Care System.  I am sure it will strengthen our continued efforts to invest in our people and improve health and care for our local population.”

Alistair Mclellan, Editor of the HSJ, said: “We would like to congratulate Frimley Leadership and Improvement Academy on being nominated in the category of System Leadership Initiative of the Year Award ahead of this year’s 2019 HSJ awards.

“The entrants this year have been of incredible calibre, and each of the finalists in this category have been chosen based on their outstanding commitment to excellence in healthcare.”
