CMFT teams nominated for HSJ Awards 2015
MRI consultant in the running for patient safety
A Manchester Royal Infirmary consultant has been nominated for a
prestigious national award for his pioneering work in improving the
safety and experience of local urology patients.
Mr Ben Grey, Consultant Urologist, has been shortlisted from
over 1,600 entries for a Health Services Journal award in the
category of 'Patient Safety' for his 'iUROWARD' initiative.
The initiative has revamped the way the Urology team works,
introducing a 'Registrar of the Week', a checklist to be followed
at every ward round and the inclusion of nursing staff on ward
rounds to improve team working.
The results following introduction of the initiative
demonstrated improved mortality, a reduction in complaints and
patients spending less time in hospital, as well as improving the
continuity of care for patients over the weekend, who also
benefitted from seeing more senior clinicians.
