THE trust which runs Preston and Chorley hospitals has been shortlisted for three Nursing Times awards for two separate initiatives.

Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust has been named as a finalist in the ‘Emergency and Critical Care’ category for its protected sleep for adults in critical care initiative.

Also its partnership with the Teenage Cancer Trust’s work in setting up a support service for young people who are battling cancer has been shortlisted in both the ‘Child and Adolescent Services’ award and the ‘HRH The Prince of Wales Award for Integrated Approaches to Care.’

Sue Reed, director of nursing at the trust, said: “These two projects have made, and continue to make such a difference to the lives of our patients and their families. We are committed to delivering excellent care with compassion for all of our patients, so we are delighted that our work has been recognised by the Nursing Times Awards.”

The Nursing Times Awards showcase the superb innovations that are shaping and improving nurse-led care in the NHS and independent healthcare providers.

Hundreds of entries are submitted that prove nurses are continuing to improve the treatment and care they provide for their patients. Representatives from the shortlisted team will meet the judges in September. Winners will be announced in November.
