Norfolk Community Health & Care NHS Trust (NCH&C) has been shortlisted for the annual HSJ (Health Services Journal) Awards 2017.  The awards recognise, celebrate and promote the finest achievements in the NHS, across 22 categories.  

NCH&C have been shortlisted in the Workforce category for the Talent Management Programme roll out.

Talent Management is a programme which aims to develop staff and managers, either to prepare them for future positions within the Trust or to enhance performance in their current roles, all with the aim to improve patient care.

With the potential of a number of people retiring over the next few years this programme has initially been rolled out to leaders across NCH&C to ensure there is sufficient preparation and planning for these positions.  This allows existing staff to move into leadership positions, saving money on recruitment and interim contractors. 

Finalists for this category demonstrated that they are looking for new strategic approaches to workforce planning to improve quality and productivity. Our services and other shortlisted organisations will now be assessed by a judging panel made up of senior and influential figures from the health sector.

Paul Cracknell, Director of Strategy & Transformation said: “We are delighted to have been recognised for our Talent Management Programme. We have seen an increase in development opportunities, resulting from secondments, leading to posts being filled. This ultimately impacts on the service we provide and improved patient care.”

The winners of all the awards will be announced at a ceremony at Intercontinental O2, London, on 22 November 2017.
