Awards for communications excellence

The Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital’s communications team has picked up two awards from the Institute of Public Relations (IPR) CREAM Awards 2002 for East Anglia.

The NNUH team picked up a gold award in the category of Best Newsletter, for the hospital‘s magazine, The Pulse. The magazine was launched in April 2002, is produced in-house and at a cheaper cost than its predecessor publication. The Pulse is not funded from NHS monies. The judges praised The Pulse as a “great looking magazine, well executed and researched”.

The hospital team also picked up a silver award in the category of Best Low Budget Campaign, for a Men’s Health Week campaign in June 2002 that involved setting up a Men’s Health clinic in a Norwich pub during the World Cup. The judges viewed it as a “sharp and effective” campaign.

Hospital head of communications Andrew Stronach said: “We’re really pleased to have beaten stiff competition from both private and public sectors to pick up these awards.

“We’re committed to improving our communications and to making sure we give the best value for money we can. We’re a small but experienced team of three and it’s fantastic to get some recognition from our peers.”

The NNUH communications team is comprised of Sue Jones, Hayley Gerrard and Andrew Stronach.
