Integration Excellence Award 2012 (Partnership Excellence Award)
The winners of this award will have improved the coordination of services for people affected by cancer. For example, the nominee may have improved the way people work together or the way services are designed across sectors. They’ll have worked in partnership with a range of stakeholder groups, including other organisations and people affected by cancer.
Possible evidence may include service integration:
- Across acute, community or primary care
- Across health and social care
- Involving people affected by cancer
- Involving other sectors, for example academic, business or voluntary
- At local, regional and national levels
- With other long-term conditions.

Macmillan Nursing Services Manager, Cancer and Palliative Care, East and North Hertfordshire NHS Trust.
Liz developed a survey to assess retrospectively the level of satisfaction of carers of our palliative care cancer patients relating to the support and care provided across East & North Hertfordshire and West Hertfordshire.
The aims of the survey were to:
- measure how well carers’ needs are met
- ensure that the key elements of the National End of Life Strategy and related standards/frameworks are being addressed.
- identify any aspects of the carer’s experience where services and support can be improved
- share key information with all care providers so that the whole experience for carers is reviewed and the appropriate teams address any areas for improvement
- assess compliance against national end of life (EOL) initiatives.
