Hospital Media and Communications Team shortlisted for award
The Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital’s Media and Communications Team has been shortlisted for an award from the Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR).
The hospital team has been shortlisted for the Best Publication of the Year, which focuses on the special dementia edition of the hospital’s Pulse magazine, highlighting the support available at NNUH and the wider community for people affected by dementia and their families and carers.
The magazine, which was produced in alignment with the Trust’s annual ‘Dementia Information Fayre’ held in May 2018, highlighted useful information for patients and visitors including how to eat well with dementia, the work of the Dementia Support Team here at NNUH, as well as the work of local support groups and charities.
The CIPR Awards winners for the Anglia, Thames and Chiltern Region will be announced at an event in Cambridge on the 15 November 2018.
Fiona Devine, Director of Communications at NNUH, said: “Norfolk has a higher than average older population and dementia is a subject which will be very important to many people in the community. For the magazine, we wanted to collate lots of useful information into one place to support our patients and visitors affected by dementia.”
Fiona added: “The team is really pleased to have been recognised by the CIPR and to have been shortlisted for the award.”
Mark Davies, Chief Executive of NNUH said: “The team has done a fantastic job in being shortlisted for the award. I would like to thank them for all their work in the Trust on staff and public communications. Good communications is very important and vital to the Trust.”
The NNUH Communications team is comprised of Fiona Devine, Janice Bradfield, Lizzie Gayton, Adam Gretton and Clare Simpson.
