The county’s leading provider of mental health and learning disabilities services, Lincolnshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (LPFT) is delighted to be a finalist for Mental Health Trust of the Year in the prestigious Health Service Journal (HSJ) Awards, which recognise outstanding contributions to healthcare.

LPFT is just one of 6 finalists up for the award, with this national recognition commending the ongoing work of the Trust to strengthen the county’s mental health offer and support people to access excellent care as close to home as possible, in the least restrictive environment.

The nomination for this award drew on a broad range of work and initiatives delivered by the Trust over recent years, and work commended by the HSJ included the transformation of LPFT’s older adults inpatient service, implementation of the Lincolnshire Mental Health Helpline, work on new models of care in children and young people’s services and expanding crisis support.

Also recognised was the trust’s collaborative work with a range of partners and stakeholders across the county, as well as its prioritisation of staff wellbeing and BAME and LGBT+ Staff Networks.

Jane Marshall, LPFT’s Director of People, Planning and Partnerships, said:  

“We are immensely proud of this recognition, which commends our fantastic Trust on a national scale during a year in which the NHS has faced unprecedented pressure and demand.

“The way in which our staff and teams have stepped up to the challenges of the past year, continuing to provide excellent care to our patients and service users, while looking after one another along the way is awe inspiring.

“We want to thank our staff for their help in achieving this recognition, and for their continued compassion, dedication and care for what we do – we couldn’t do any of this without you.”

Now in its 40th year, the HSJ Awards is the largest annual benchmarking and recognition programme for healthcare. Representatives from LPFT recently presented to a panel of judges as part of the judging process, including the voices of staff in the presentation. The winners will be announced during the awards ceremony, which will take place virtually on Wednesday 17 March 2021.
