National Recognition for our Anaesthesia Team


A project led by our Anaesthetic team has received nationwide recognition at this year's Quality in Care Awards. 'Personalised Patient Experience Tracker: innovative use of patient experience to enhance postoperative recovery of gynae-oncology patients after surgery' was judged to be the winning entry in this year's Quality in Care (QiC), Excellence in Oncology Awards. Judges said that the project demonstrated "an impressive multi-disciplinary team approach, and a well though-out initiative demonstrating significant improvements in peri-operative care".

The team led by Dr Sujesh Bansal, Consultant Anaesthetist, tracked individual patients' experiences during whole of their in-patient stay by an innovative use of hand-held 'patient experience tracker', which reviews existing obstacles to timely discharge of gynae-oncology surgical patients. Dr Sujesh Bansal, Dr Catherine Holland (Consultant Gynaecologist) and Oliver Radford (Directorate Manager - Anaesthetics) attended the award ceremony held in London on Tuesday 10th December.

Other members of the team included Tanviha Quraishi (Anaesthetic Research Assistant), Eve Koutidou (Patient Experience & Quality Team) and Jaclyn Arkwright (Programme Manager, SMH). The team also thanked Dr Dan Conway (Consultant Anaesthetist), Trust ERAS Nurses and many other multi-disciplinary colleagues who supported this project, which ensures the best peri-operative patient centred care is delivered for our patients.
