Connecting Care for Children win at HSJ Awards 2018

We are thrilled to announce that we have won a 2018 HSJ Award in the acute or specialist redesign category for London and the South.

CC4C was recognised for developing professional relationships across traditional boundaries, championing patients and having a whole systems approach.

“We know patients have wonderful relationships with their local GPs,” explains Dr Mando Watson, “and that coming into hospital can be very daunting. If we, as paediatricians, are in a local practice working with GPs, then patients can access our expertise much more easily, and more children get the care they need without being referred immediately to hospital.”

We would like to thank Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust and all the professionals and patients in our wider team for supporting CC4C.
