Frances Jaye Compassionate Care Awards 2016

Nominations for the Frances Jaye Compassionate Care Awards opened on the 6th May. These prestigious awards, which recognise and promote exceptional care and compassion, are being sponsored by the Clinical Human Factors Group (CHFG) and Sign up to Safety. The awards are in memory of Frances Jaye, a mother and wife who was passionate about quality care. The family wanted a legacy, to promote the values Frances stood for and to celebrate such values in others.


Frances Jaye Compassionate Care Awards

The winners of two awards will be announced on 13th October 2016 at the CHFG Open Seminar. One award will go to an individual and one to a multi-professional team. Winners will receive an award of recognition and funding for travel, accommodation and conference fees to attend the CHFG conference. This award will enable them to identify opportunities to further support and advance a safety or compassion related activity back in their organisation.

Nominations can be made by patients, their families and by healthcare staff.

Nominees must work in a health-related organisation or practice, including an NHS Trust, GP Practice or Independent Health or Social Care provider. Any individual care-giver, or team of care-givers with direct patient contact is eligible to be nominated. Individuals and teams cannot nominate themselves.

Professor Jane Reid from the Clinical Human Factors Group, said: “This is a fantastic opportunity to acknowledge front line care givers on whom the quality of patient care depends. Working with Sign up to Safety provides opportunity to emphasise the importance of recognising the ‘person in the patient’, and to highlight how human factors awareness informs compassionate care giving. Across our services we need role models to celebrate their commitment, practices and values to emulate; through the generosity of the Jaye family, in memory of a much loved Wife and Mother, we are able to do that. The values and ideals Frances held so dear will be honoured and rightly celebrated”.

Dr. Suzette Woodward, National Director for Sign up to Safety, said: “We are delighted to join with the Clinical Human Factors Group in supporting these important awards. We believe in a positive patient safety culture with compassionate care at its heart. Through our actions, we want to create a joyful, trusting, open and optimistic approach to patient safety improvement; empowering and enabling all care staff to make the changes they want to see in their work. We see each day and every action as an opportunity to learn, to improve and to celebrate progress, and these awards give us a great opportunity to support and commend those who show exceptional care and compassion to their patients. We are looking forward to shining a light on the winning examples of care-giving, to help inspire others to do the same.”
