In April, Infection Prevention and Control (IPC) Lead Jo Reynard won the 2018 NHS flu fighter champion award.
Jo picked up the award at a ceremony in Manchester which celebrated the achievements of flu teams and organisations across the country in promoting the flu vaccine to frontline health and social care staff in the season 2017/18.
She was recognised for her tireless efforts, including her ‘flu mascots’ Flo and Frankie, which helped Leeds Community Healthcare achieve a vaccination rate of 76.8% this year.
Jo and the IPC team also helped vaccinate hundreds of Leeds City Council’s Adult Social Care workforce.
The Leeds Infant Mental Health Service and Health Visiting service were awarded runner-up in the Innovation in Health Visiting Practice award.
They were recognised for their work on the Early Attachment Observation (EAO) that supports health visitors across the city to identify emerging relationship difficulties between infants and their care-givers in the first few weeks of life so that the difficulties can be addressed quickly and effectively.
Leeds Community Healthcare NHS Trust has earned four nominations at an awards ceremony which recognises the finest achievements in the NHS.
The Health Service Journal (HSJ) Awards have shone a light on the best work in the service for nearly 40 years and the 2017 ceremony takes place at the InterContinental O2 in London in November 2017.
