PCS Finalist for 2022 HSJ Awards!

We’re proud to have been shortlisted for the prestigious national awards for third year in a row

Primary Care Sheffield (PCS) is proud to have been shortlisted in the “Primary and Community Care Provider of the Year” category in this year’s Health Service Journal (HSJ) Awards.

Following a thorough judging process, PCS was shortlisted ahead of the official awards ceremony to be held later this year (November 17th). Against tough competition from across the UK the judges believed that our work stood out as a ‘success story’ based on five criteria: ambition, outcomes, value, partnership working, and how the project might be “picked up” and replicated elsewhere.

The HSJ Awards are seen as the most prestigious national awards showcase for NHS services. Now in its 42nd year, the HSJ Awards shines a light on the outstanding efforts and achievements that individuals and teams across the sector deliver on a daily basis. 

Primary Care Sheffield is a not-for-profit company set up and developed by general practice in Sheffield to provide support in delivering world class primary care. Our vision is to deliver world-class primary care which helps people live healthier and happier lives.

Dr Andy Hilton, Chief Executive of Primary Care Sheffield said “This shortlisting recognises that despite challenging circumstances and constrained resources we have shown we can deliver successful high-quality at-scale services which support primary care as well taking forward a series of eye-catching initiatives which are leading the way for change nationally.”

“It’s the third year in a row that the work of PCS has been recognised by the awards following the success in 2020 and 2021 of the Sevenhills PCN vulnerable person visiting service, the Sheffield Community COVID-19 Testing programme, and the Sheffield Primary and Community Mental Health Transformation Programme. This remarkable run shows the consistent hard work, dedication, and innovation of our amazing teams.”

HSJ editor Alastair McLellan, said; “On behalf of all my colleagues, it gives me great pleasure to congratulate Primary Care Sheffield being shortlisted as a finalist in the category of ‘Primary and Community Provider of the Year. All of the applications represent the ‘very best of the NHS’ and often leave our esteemed panel of judges with an impossible choice”
