Data Quality Awards recognise the importance of clinical coding and data quality, and the essential role it plays in ensuring appropriate patient care. This year's Data Quality Awards were given to Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust (England, Wales and Northern Ireland), Spire Bristol Hospital for the independent sector and the Moorfields Eye Hospital NHS Foundation Trust in the specialist category.
Winner of the Healthcare Efficiency Award was Ashford and St Peter's Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and Gateshead Health NHS Foundation Trust won the Patient Experience Award. A new award for Most Improved Trust was given to Salisbury NHS Foundation Trust.
CHKS also celebrates overall excellence in trusts across the UK. The Top Hospitals Award is given to the top 40 trusts based on the evaluation of over 20 key performance indicators which cover safety, clinical effectiveness, health outcomes, efficiency, patient experience and quality of care.
