Rethinking the Patient Pathway award winners
The winning team was the radiography team from Southern Health and Social Care Trust (SHSCT). Their radiographer-led service has reduced waiting lists for hysterosalpingogram examinations for women with fertility problems from 14 to zero weeks. Patients were closely involved in the redesign and the radiographers showed real leadership skills in driving forward the changes, working collaboratively with medical staff.
The team were also appointed as the overall winners of the Advancing Healthcare awards programme in Northern Ireland, which is a truly outstanding achievement.
