Our ICAN (Integrated Children’s Additional Needs) team has been highly commended at the HSJ awards!
The team was given recognition at a ceremony held at the Intercontinental O2, London, on Wednesday evening for its innovative work on the Let Me Show You! App.
The application - developed in partnership with specialists mHabitat, Leeds and York Partnership Foundation Trust (LYPFT) and technical firm ADI - is designed to support young people with complex specialist needs through transition to adult services.
It aims to put young people at the centre by enabling them to invite those involved in their care to join their ‘network’, contribute to the delivery of their goals and access training materials produced by the young person which are held in a specially designed library.
As part of the application’s development, a series of workshops were held with young people, carers, family members, personal assistants and a range of clinical, education and social care professionals.
The team is currently about to roll out beta testing - usually the last stage of testing.
The LMSU! app was highly commended in the awards' Patient Digital Participation Category.
Head of Service Benita Powrie and Children's Occupational Therapist Katy Wilson attended the ceremony.
Benita said: "We had a great night. Myself and Katy attended along with our Let Me Show U Team (Alicia Ridout from MHabitat, Dan Stapleton from ADI and Colin McDonnell, Susan McDonnell and Janine McDonnell our service user advisors).
"We were really excited and pleased with the outcome!".
