WDP and partners win HSJ Partnership Award 2023

WDP is delighted to announce that the Hepatitis C Drug Treatment Service Provider Forum, which WDP is a part of, has been crowned the winner of the Best Healthcare Analytics Project at the HSJ Partnership Awards 2023, recognising their outstanding dedication to improving healthcare and effective collaboration with the NHS.

Winners in a total of 21 categories, were announced during a ceremony at Evolution London, on 23 March 2023, hosted by comedian Joel Dommett. The event was attended by over 900 guests, bringing together national healthcare leaders and professionals from both the NHS and private sector as well as figures from non-clinical backgrounds to celebrate the crucial contributions of the private and third sector within the NHS.

The Hepatitis C Drug Treatment Services (DTS) Provider Forum was nominated for its ‘Hepatitis C Virus Screening in Drug Treatment Services’ initiative, which aims to eliminate Hepatitis C from UK drug and alcohol services by the end of 2023.

Membership of the Provider Forum includes a collection of the UK’s leading drug and alcohol service providers and The Hepatitis C Trust. The group’s members have been working together to implement a collaborative reporting and monitoring approach in Hepatitis C test and treat data.

Marlon Freeman, WDP’s Hep C Coordinator told us: “We were extremely grateful that HSJ selected The Hep C Provider Forum to be a finalist in these categories. The hard work from its members is validated and shows appreciation in the mission to micro-eliminate Hep C in drug treatment services. Winning ‘Best Healthcare Analytics Projects for the NHS’ is an amazing achievement and displays our strong spirit of collaboration. Special thank you to all our WDP Data Leads.”

HSJ editor Alastair McLellan comments: “The national healthcare sector faced innumerable pressures over the past 12 months, yet the standard and overriding positivity of the partnerships yet again this year highlights the enduring dedication to improving patient outcomes. So, we’re delighted that The Hep C Provider Forum has been announced as winners in the category of Best Healthcare Analytics at this year’s HSJ Partnership Awards 2023. The Hep C Provider Forum stood out in an outstanding field of nominees, each showcasing the very best collaborations and innovations in the healthcare sector today.”
