Kaleidoscope Health and Care, Edge Health and Cambridgeshire and Peterborough sustainability and transformation partnership (STP) won the category at the HSJ Partnership Awards for their work establishing digital diabetes care services.

 The HSJ Partnership Awards 2022 took place to celebrate and showcase those collaborations and partnerships driving transformation and improving patient outcomes across the NHS.

Following a rigorous judging process, Kaleidoscope and Edge Health were given the award in recognition of their innovative and collaborative partnership with Cambridgeshire and Peterborough sustainability and transformation partnership (STP).

 The award winning collaboration supported the delivery of a digital service to improve diabetes remission and care. Edge Health supported Kaleidoscope to work with staff and patients to identify the key areas where they could create real change. As a result of the work, three primary care networks improved their performance and more than 400 additional patients received care. The model has now been rolled out to a further four areas.

 The judges said:

 “The enthusiasm of all involved in the partnership was infectious and really apparent. There is potential for it to be scalable across other health systems and other long term conditions. Qualitative data for local populations gathered and captured helped understanding how to remove barriers for practices in terms of communication and supporting patients with appropriate digital mediums.”

 Dave West, Health Service Journal’s Deputy Editor congratulated the teams on their successful win:

 “This year’s entrants displayed a varied range of projects and partnerships, all working together to benefit the nation’s healthcare sector. The winners were chosen after considerable deliberation on many success factors, but primarily on the innovativeness and commitment to healthcare.”

 Clare Allcock who led the project at Kaleidoscope said:

 “A lot of what we do is about relationships and helping people work better as teams, organisations and systems. So it is particularly lovely to get this award working in collaboration with brilliant people at Edge and Cambridge and Peterborough. This was a really rewarding project but this award is the icing on a fantastic cake.”
