We're finalists for the HSJ Partnership Awards!

L&R UK have been shortlisted for two HSJ Partnership Awards

We’re delighted to announce that together with Mid Yorkshire NHS Trust, L&R UK have been shortlisted for two HSJ Partnership Awards 2024.

👉 Most Effective Contribution to Clinical Redesign

👉 Best Community Services Partnership with the NHS

Working in partnership with the Vascular Nurse Consultant within Mid Yorks, L&R UK have supported the redesign of care delivery for leg ulcer patients to reduce nursing hours and associated costs of care, improve patient and workforce wellbeing, and improve nursing workforce retention.

This consisted of:

  • Implementation of the Lower Limb Wound Pathway (Atkin & Tickle 2016) to standardise care service-wide

  • Implementation of the leg ulcer champion model to build competency and capability in the clinical workforce

  • Empowering patients to self care, releasing nursing capacity

L&R UK are dedicated to supporting trusts to transform patients LIVES with venous leg ulceration, reducing the burden on the NHS and improving patient quality of life.

The winners of each category will be revealed at an awards night held at Evolution London on the 21st March 2024.
