Workplace mental health hub highly commended at the BMA Patient Information Awards.

In 2017 I developed a content plan and wrote 26 articles for Bupa’s new workplace mental health hub. I used to be a workplace ‘health check’ consultant for Time to Change and I enjoyed using my knowledge and experience of the issues involved to create resources that would help organisations make positive change.

All the articles were written to the Information Standard – an NHS kitemark that requires them to be based on the latest evidence and regularly reviewed.

The hub was shortlisted for a Bupa Global Clinical Excellence Award in 2018 and was recently highly commended at the British Medical Association Patient Information Awards.

Last time my work was nominated (and came runner up in two special categories), I was 37 weeks pregnant and didn’t want to risk a trip to London. This time, I was recovering from a missed miscarriage and was again unable to attend. One day I’ll make it – it’s a good opportunity to catch up with old colleagues and meet people doing wonderful and innovative things in the world of patient information.

Miscarriage Association learning resources ‘Highly Commended’ in EVCOM Awards

Highly commended

I’m really pleased that the films I helped research and develop as part of the Miscarriage Association’s new learning resources for health professionals have just received a ‘Highly Commended’ in the Drama category of the EVCOM awards. These resources have been well received by health professionals too – they were given a 5* review in The Obstetrician and Gynaecologist in January.

I’ve written more about the work I did on the project here. The next step is to work with the Royal Colleges to accredit the resources. I’m currently researching the different options and approaches to accreditation at the different colleges.
