Exceptional Healthcare Awards - Team of the Year

Thursday, 9 November 2017

There’s not long to go until this year’s Exceptional Healthcare Awards.

The awards, supported by Southmead Hospital Charity, celebrate the efforts and achievements of some of our outstanding members of staff and volunteers.

In the lead-up to the awards ceremony on November 10, we will be showcasing the shortlisted nominees in every category.

Today we are highlighting the shortlisted nominees in the Team of the Year category, which recognises a team or ward that provides an exceptional service as a result of team working.

The shortlisted nominees are:

Joe Philip and the Bristol Lithotripsy Unit

The Stone Unit has streamlined and progressed the evaluation and care for patients with painful kidney stones. This involved setting up an emergency shock wave lithotripsy service with identified patients being treated on the day of admission. The team’s nomination highlighted how they have been recognised locally and regionally for their cohesive and dynamic approach to treat these patients efficiently, and in the shortest time possible.
