COVID-19 has changed the way care is delivered to people with long term conditions which is exemplified by the treatment of people with diabetes. The extraordinary work undertaken during the unprecedented pressure of COVID-19 will be reflected in the 2021 awards. We are therefore focusing QiC to recognise the transformation of services and care provision which has been undertaken in response to these unprecedented times.
Please note type 1 pathways should be entered into the type 1 specialist service category and emotional well-being into the Mind and Body Healthy Together category.
Have you or your community, secondary, GP multidisciplinary team (MDT) made significant positive changes to services in response to COVID-19 with demonstrable results of improved quality and delivery of effective integrated services that are based in the community and/or in hospital?
This category recognises innovative patient care pathway initiatives in response to COVID-19 based on patient needs and goals with demonstrable results of improved quality and delivery of effective integrated services that are based in the community and/or in hospital.
Entries will be judged on five essential criteria: innovation, equality, diversity and variation, results, user feedback along with dissemination and sustainability.
