UHL shortlisted for HSJ Value in Healthcare Awards

We are pleased to announce that seven-day imaging for cancer from University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust (UHL) has been shortlisted in the Value and Improvement in the use of Diagnostics category for the Health Service Journal (HSJ) Value in Healthcare Awards.

This is the first HSJ Value in Healthcare Awards, successor to the HSJ Efficiency Awards, and seeks to recognise and reward outstanding efficiency and improvement.

This nomination is demonstrative of the success of the UHL’s imaging department, which Althea provides with a managed equipment service.  We have procured and installed eleven new CT and MR scanners for UHL since March 2013, giving the Trust, and its patients, access to the latest and most suitable technology.

The HSJ Value in Healthcare Awards will be held on 23rd September at London’s Grosvenor House Hotel with NHS and independent sector industry leaders attending.

Andy Jones, Althea’s Head of Implementation and Technology commented, “We are delighted to have supported UHL’s Imaging Department and are thrilled that their hard work is being recognised.  The new technology means that the Trust and its staff are providing the best patient care and we wish them every success at the awards evening.”
