CHCP shortlisted for the 2023 HSJ Awards

14 August, 2023

City Health Care Partnership CIC is delighted to announce that we have been shortlisted for Primary and Community Care Provider of the Year at the HSJ Awards, recognising an outstanding contribution to healthcare and securing a place at the prestigious awards ceremony later this year.

A record-breaking 1456 entries were received for this year’s Awards, with 223 projects and individuals reaching the final shortlist, making it the biggest awards programme in the award’s 43-year history. The high volume - and exceptional quality – of applications once again mirrors the impressive levels of innovation and care continually being developed within the UK’s healthcare networks.

Following the thorough judging process, CHCP was shortlisted ahead of the official awards ceremony to be held later this year (November 16th), with the organisation standing out as a real success story worthy of a prized place on the panel’s shortlist.

Since the pandemic, CHCP has had to overcome many complex challenges yet despite these obstacles, aided by our ambition to be ‘Passionate about People’, we have excelled in delivering high quality community and primary care to patients while creating a positive working environment for our employees. CHCP has been integral in the forging of new integrated care partnerships, playing a prominent role in responding to system pressures. We have also continued to enhance the health and wellbeing support offered to our workforce, increase our commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion topics and strengthen our corporate social responsibility agenda.

CHCP’s Group Chief Executive, Andrew Burnell, says, “We are chuffed to bits to be shortlisted in the HSJ Awards for Primary and Community Care Provider of the Year. It’s recognition for our fantastic colleagues, who work incredibly hard to provide top quality, compassionate care to the communities we serve. And to do this in a year when the competition was so tough with a huge number of entries is a massive achievement.”

HSJ editor Alastair McLellan, adds, “It always gives me great pleasure to congratulate our finalists at this stage of the judging process and this year is no exception. It’s been so encouraging to hear that 2023 has been record-breaking in terms of the number of applicants and, as ever, the calibre of entries left our panel of expert judges with some tough decisions to deliberate over.

“However, it’s always important to remember that the HSJ Awards are not just a celebration of success stories but also a platform to shape the future of the NHS.

“We can’t wait to welcome our finalists to the awards ceremony in November and to recognise and applaud such impressive achievements across the sector – as well as coming together to help mark the 75th birthday of our great NHS. Huge thanks also go to our new headline partner, Vodafone, who share our mission of driving the standard of healthcare excellence and creating better patient experiences.”

The selected winners will be announced during the awards ceremony at Evolution London on November 16 2023. The event will not only reflect the HSJ Awards’ enduring ethos of “sharing best practice, improving patient outcomes and innovating drivers of better service” but will also serve as a timely and well-deserved thank you to the sector during the 75th anniversary year of the NHS.

The 2023 awards judging panel was once again made up of a diverse range of highly influential and respected figures within the healthcare community, including; Crystal Oldman, Chief Executive, Queen’s Nursing Institute; Dr Habib Naqvi MBE, Chief Executive, NHS Race and Health Observatory; Anne-Marie Vine-Lott, Director of Health, Vodafone; Sir Jim Mackey, National Director of Elective Recovery, NHS England, as well as a range of esteemed Chief Executives from NHS Trusts across the UK.
