Team scoops national award for innovation
The award from Wounds UK follows the Health Enterprise East Awards last year, when the team beat off stiff competition to scoop the top award for innovation.
Clinical lead senior nurse specialist Carrie Wingfield said the one-stop service is the result of collaborative work with emergency specialists and nurses in Primary Care. It means patients with lower-limb cellulitis can have rapid access to specialist treatment without the need to stay in hospital.
Most patients like the one-stop service as they are able to go home after receiving the treatment they need, says specialist nurse Carrie Wingfield, This also frees up hospital beds for other patients.
Its good to have national recognition for our work and to see that we are setting an example for other hospital teams to follow."
