NCHA are proud and delighted to accept on behalf of its members the Global Health Pharma (GHP) Magazine Social Care Awards 2021 for
‘Best Clinical Homecare Support Services – London’.
Alison Davis, Chair of NCHA is delighted to accept this award on behalf of the NCHA Members.
At this time, I am proud to accept this award on behalf of the Homecare Industry based on the ‘Extraordinary challenges faced in 2020’. This achievement could not have been realized without the help and support from our wonderful NHS colleagues across the UK and the National Homecare Medicines Committee (NHMC) led by Susan Gibert as Chair.
The NHMC have helped us to deliver care to the patients we seek to serve and the ‘Extraordinary Collaboration’ that has been in place allowed us to put patient safety at the forefront of every discussion, and address issues which were identified as potential risks promptly and efficiently. In 2020 this allowed Homecare Providers to react very quickly in the rapidly changing environment, to maintain business continuity and to meet increased NHS demand during the COVID-19 crisis, thereby helping even more vulnerable patients (in excess of 20,000) to be shielded at home during the pandemic, I believe this is testament to all involved.
It is also important to give thanks and recognize the tremendous support provided to the NCHA by our Patient Communication Group Representatives who have helped steer our communication with patients and carers during this very difficult time.
Furthermore, it would be remiss of me not to thank the Pharmaceutical Industry, who in many cases fund service provision and most importantly to our Patients and Carers enrolled on our services. We thank you all for the kind words and messages we have received which has really helped support all staff at this time. Rest assured, we are here and will continue to be here to support you.
