We are proud to announce that the South West Provider Collaborative (SWPC) has been shortlisted in the HSJ Awards 2022 in the Provider Collaboration of the Year category.
The SWPC submitted an entry under the title 'To transform outcomes for people with mental health conditions by working collaboratively, at-scale'.
Anne Forbes, Programme Director, and Jason Fee, Clinical Director for the Provider Collaborative, said:
"We are immensely proud to have been shortlisted by the Health Service Journal for the ‘Provider Collaboration of the Year’ award in 2022. This is testament to the incredible hard work of all of our partners and our small internal team who are all resolutely committed to working together to make a positive difference to the lives of some of society’s most vulnerable people.
"We are a specialised mental health Provider Collaborative with 9 provider member organisations who work collaboratively to design the clinical solutions across our region. We cover a population of five million, and a geography of 22,000 square kilometres.
"Our entry for this award is to recognise the development and implementation of a real-time patient flow system which has enabled us to plan, measure and improve our patients journeys in real-time, spanning six Integrated Care Systems (ICSs), allowing us to transform flow into, within and out of our services.
"We recognise that effective collaboration lies at the very heart of securing improvements in services and look forward to continuing our work together as we seek to be a vanguard for innovative and integrated solutions for the benefit of the population we serve."
This year, 1067 entries were received for the HSJ Awards 2022, with 219 projects and individuals making it to the final shortlist (from across 162 organisations).

Now in its 42nd year, the HSJ Awards continue to provide an opportunity to shine a light on the outstanding efforts and achievements that individuals and teams across the sector deliver on a daily basis.
HSJ editor Alastair McLellan, said: “On behalf of all my colleagues, it gives me great pleasure to congratulate the South West Provider Collaborative on being shortlisted as a finalist in the category of Provider Collaboration of the Year. All of the applications represent the ‘very best of the NHS’ and often leave our esteemed panel of judges with an impossible choice!
“Year on year the number of entrants continue to rise which I find so encouraging and is testament to the effect that HSJ Awards can have on improved staff culture and morale.
“We’re all very much looking forward to welcoming our finalists to the awards ceremony in November, celebrating their impressive achievements and jointly acknowledging our values of sharing best practice, improving patient outcomes and continuously driving for better service. But we never forget that the award ceremony is not just a celebration within a night, but a platform to recognise the hard work of all our NHS staff, all year round.”
