Health Quality Checkers nominated for national Patient Experience Network award

We are delighted to let you know that Northumbria Healthcare NHS Trust put forward the Health Quality Checkers team for a PEN national award for the work they have carried out with the Community Dental Team in North Tyneside.

They said that “this project felt special because of the strong partnership between health care staff and our team”. The common aim of the project is to ensure that the needs of people with learning disabilities are fully met and that they are at the centre of every aspect of their care.

Although we did not win on the day, we were so pleased to be nominated. Suzie and Billy were given a certificate signed by the judges who recognised their contribution toward improving patient experience.
