The Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital's Communications Team has been shortlisted for a top award from the Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR).
The hospital team has been shortlisted in the regional CIPR PRide awards for its communications campaign on Memory Matters in the category of best low budget campaign. Memory Matters is a scheme to assess patients aged 75 and over for early signs of dementia when they are admitted to hospital in an emergency.
