Medical Director Dr Nigel Hewett OBE said:
“Pathway helps homeless people by bringing together professionals in hospitals. Over 3000 patients every year rely on the kindness, compassion and expertise of Pathway teams across the country. We are delighted that their hard work has been recognised”
Kate Granger was a Consultant Geriatrician and campaigner for better patient care. After being diagnosed with cancer she began the “#hellomynameis” campaign, encouraging healthcare staff to introduce themselves to patients before beginning treatment.
Sadly Kate died earlier this year, but before her death she chose the winners of the awards she helped to set up.
The awards will presented by Kate’s husband at the NHS Expo on 7th September.
