Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust's catering team was also singled out for praise with the Award for Improving Environmental and Social Sustainability

Commenting on scooping the Award for Improving Environmental and Social Sustainability, in recognition of its pioneering work to provide nutritious, healthy and sustainably-sourced food to patients; Emma Wilson, head of catering at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, said: “We are continually working to achieve best practice in all that we do, including providing healthy, high-quality food at good cost for our patients and staff and supporting the NHS carbon reduction strategy.

“Not only has this improved patient satisfaction scores, but will it inevitably have a wider environmental impact on the community which we serve.”

St George’s University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust picked up the Using Technology to Improve Efficiency category for its Home Monitoring of Hypertension in Pregnancy smartphone app (HaMpton).

The app allows women to monitor their blood pressure at home and alerts them if they need to attend hospital for further assessment.

Dr Asma Khalil, consultant obstetrician at St George’s, led the project after having had the idea as a junior doctor.

She said: “It means so much to be recognised at this level and we hope this helps us to implement the app on a larger scale to benefit more people.”
