The awards were created in 1981 to recognise – on a national platform – the projects and initiatives that deliver healthcare excellence and innovation.
By shining a spotlight on cutting-edge innovations and best practice, the awards give impetus to improving the quality of health care in the UK.
This year, over 600 unique organisations submitted over 1,600 entries. The shortlisted organisations will now complete presentations and interviews to a specific judging panel made up of senior and influential figures from the health sector.
Paul Smeeton, chief operating executive of Health Partnerships, a Division of Nottinghamshire Healthcare, said: “Four years ago Lynne was a community matron who decided to take the courageous step of becoming clinical director for the Rushcliffe Directorate of County Health Partnerships.
“She is now a highly-respected clinical leader in the South Notts health community. This nomination is also supported by Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust (NUH), Rushcliffe CCG and the chair of the South Notts Urgent Care Board.
“We are delighted for Lynne to have been shortlisted.”
