Audit Prizes

Prizes presented to staff that are judged to have produced/presented the best audits. The hospital's annual Research & Audit Open Day is held annually.  This is an established but a unique event at Southend Hospital and is a great opportunity for medical, nursing and allied health professional staff from all specialties across the Trust, who might not normally get to engage or work with each other, to spend half a day at an event that encourages discussion, research and the sharing of learning to improve patient care. The presentation day is preceded by posters of audits being displayed in the Education Centre for staff to view.

Clinical Audit Prize - Abhishek Oswal (Diagnosis & Management of Asthma in Children)
QI Prize - Suzie Williams (Quality Service Improvement & Redesign of Paediatric Diabetes in Southend across Hospital & Community)
Research Prize - Jessica Fairbanks (Repeat Alemeier's Repair is Feasible for Polymorbid Elderly Patients with Recurrent Full Thickness Prolapse)
