Sherwood Forest Hospital staff who lead on caring for patients with learning disabilities are celebrating after winning the Making a Difference Award at National Learning Disabilities Awards held at the Birmingham ICC on Friday 28 June 2019.
The National Learning Disabilities Awards celebrate excellent support toward people with learning disabilities and aim to thank individuals who excel in providing quality care in that area.
The team, led by Paula Evans and Ruth Harrison were nominated for the National Learning Disabilities Awards after working collaboratively for over a year, to train up individuals with a learning disability and/or autism around being able to look after themselves.
They have created information that is accessible on infections, video clips on sepsis awareness and led training for professionals to support early recognition of patient deterioration.
They both continue to support awareness and collaboration, including arranging health and social care days to help people with learning disabilities or autism to access services that are available to them.
Paula Evans, Sepsis Lead Nurse for Sherwood Forest Hospitals said: “Naturally we were really pleased to pick up this award, but our aim is not to stop here. We want to continue working together with our partners to help improve the experience of healthcare for our patients, and ultimately to improve their health outcomes.”
