LPT were recognised in the Health Service Journal’s (HSJ) virtual awards ceremony which took place on Wednesday 17 March 2021.

LPT were shortlisted for two awards – The NHS Work Place Equality Award for the Trust’s work to become ‘Champions of Race Equality’ and the HSJ Partnership of the Year Award for the implementation of Autoplanner within district nursing.

Although the Trust did not come away with first prize, they are proud to have made the shortlist. LPT is also happy to announce that Angela Hillery, chief executive (picture attached), was named by HSJ as one of the top 100 NHS CEOs in the country.

LPT Chair Cathy Ellis, says: “Angela is a dedicated and inspirational healthcare leader, and it is fantastic that she has been recognised at a national level for her commitment to delivering outstanding and compassionate care. Many congratulations to both teams shortlisted at this year’s awards. We are proud of how far we have come – being a finalist is a great achievement.”
