HQIP Quality Improvement Awards 2014 - NELA Scoops National Award


The Royal College of Anaesthetists and the National Institute of Academic Anaesthesia picked up a national award for NELA under the category of 'Partnership Working with Professional Stakeholders' at the HQIP Quality Improvement Awards Dinner on Monday 3 November.

The Quality Improvement Awards marked the climax of day one of the HQIP conference, where delegates voted for a 'local' and 'national' winner in four categories via a poster competition.

The healthcare broadcaster Vivienne Parry OBE, who presented the award to the NELA Team highlighted NELA's 100% participation rate for eligible hospitals (191 hospitals) and the number of cases (20,000) that have been entered so far as an exceptional achievement for the first year of our data collection.

A huge thanks goes to all the NELA Local Leads as well as all members of the hospital teams who have participated in the Patient Audit and worked tirelessly to help us reach this important milestone.
