The Princess Alexandra Hospital NHS Trust will be among leaders of health innovation taking part in the international Giant Health Event 2019.

Staff members of the Harlow hospital will attend the second day of the two-day festival health tech innovation event at Chelsea Football Club on Wednesday, October 16.

Deputy director of quality improvement, Robert Ayers, will be among experts speaking at the event to thousands of passionate innovators wanting to improve healthcare.

Speaking ahead of the event, Mr Ayers said: “In a short time, the Princess Alexandra Hospital NHS Trust has built up a reputation, with the support of Academy of Fabulous Stuff, for its commitment to continuous quality improvement and this is reflected in the invitation to speak alongside its co-founder at this important event.

“This will be a great opportunity to share and celebrate the amazing work our people do to for the benefit of our patients, staff and wider community.

“Fab Change is a fantastic opportunity for our people to come together with their improvement ideas and energy to take a leading role in change, no matter how big or small.”

The hospital’s work has gained recognition at the Academy’s yearly awards, with the Trust winning Champion Trust of the Year for the past two years (2017 and 2018).

Princess Alexandra’s Hospital Trust has been developing more than 100 quality improvement projects devoted to enhancement of patient care.

Developments have included dementia care, early diagnosis and treatment of sepsis and enhanced self-management for patients with diabetes.
