A Corby organisation responsible for spending the majority of the local health budget on services in the area has been shortlisted for a prestigious award.
NHS Corby Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) has been nominated in the CCG Commissioning for Carers category for the 2015 Health Service Journal (HSJ) awards, which highlight the most innovative and successful people and projects in the sector.
Achievements featured in the award entry include working towards improved health of carers and improved access to support for carers.
CCG Chief Executive Carole Dehghani said: “We’re very excited to be once again shortlisted for an HSJ award.
“Last year we were the finalist in the Commissioning Group of the Year award – the highest accolade in the field.
“We see this latest recognition as further evidence of our hard work and our commitment to ensuring that the people of Corby have the best possible health services.”
HSJ editor Alastair McLellan said: “This year, more than 600 organisations submitted more than 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.
“The NHS is experiencing one of the toughest periods in its 67-year history, with demand and expectation rising and funding in short supply.
“The fact that the HSJ Awards has seen the biggest ever increase in entries shows the service remains undaunted in its mission to provide world beating patient care.”
The results will be announced on November 18 at an event held at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London.
