Victory for OUH at National Clinical Audit Awards

Two members of staff and a team from Oxford University Hospitals are celebrating victories at the recent Healthcare Quality Improvement Partnership Awards.

Sue Pavord, Consultant Haematologist, won Clinical Practitioner of the Year; Sahana Rao, Consultant Paediatrician, was highly commended in the same category; and our Resuscitation Services team was shortlisted for the Team of the Year award. Sue successfully co-ordinated the Clinical Audit programme for haematology; championed data-driven and evidence-based improvement as best practice; and produced national guidelines on the investigation and management of anaemia in pregnancy; as well as UK guidelines for caring for pregnant women with inherited bleeding disorders.

Sahana set up the Oxford University Hospitals QI Hub, a multi-professional community aiming to develop QI capability; continuous, sustained patient-centred improvement by providing shared learning, collaboration and mentorship for everyone.

The Resuscitation Services team were nominated as a team whose work infiltrates every service within the Trust.  The audit data collected by the team has helped with decision-making in patient care, which has never been more crucial than during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Meghana Pandit, Chief Medical Officer at OUH, said: “This is really wonderful news, and was a fantastic way to end Clinical Audit Awareness Week.

“I am immensely proud of our staff – not just our winners and nominees, but also our excellent Clinical Governance team.  Their hard work has had such a positive impact – clinical audit is a vital part of quality improvement in healthcare, and allows us to provide the best possible care to our patients.”
