PENNA 2017-561

The Patient Experience Network National Awards are the first and only awards programme to recognise best practice in patient experience across all facets of health and social care in the UK.

Past participants tell us that winning one of these prestigious awards has brought great benefits for both them and their organisation, and simply taking part can be extremely fulfilling

Following a unique format, all shortlisted entrants have the opportunity to take part in the exhibition at our Awards event, which celebrates all the finalists’ work, creating a fantastic atmosphere, with the category winners also presenting on the day.  Guest speakers join us, sharing their inspiration and experience.  A buffet lunch allows attendees to network, gather ideas and take in current and future trends that will go on to transform the experience of care in the UK at all levels.

All of this makes the PENNA Conference a networking opportunity not to be missed.

The PENNA 2018 Awards Conference will be held on Wednesday 20th March 2019, 9:30am – 6:00pm, The Rep Theatre, Birmingham.

Additional tickets for the day can be purchased here. (Priced at £169 + VAT for organisations that entered the awards and £249 + VAT for non entrants.)

This year we are delighted to announce a brand new category that will be awarded at the event in March. The Fiona Littledale Award recognises Oncology Nurses who have demonstrated their own personal commitment to developing their skills and understanding of the field. This award will celebrate all their work so far and will hopefully enable them to persue those studies further. This category is free to enter and is generously funded in partnership with the Fiona Fund.

Fiona Littledale spent all her working life as an information manager. For the final ten years she worked as Faculty Liason Librarian for the St George’s Medical School. During her time there she trained hundreds of health professionals to access relevant, peer-reviewed and reliable information. Despite her failing health during 7 years of cancer care she devoted herself to encouraging them in continuing professional development – seeking to go further and learn more in pursuit of excellence.

​Each year the Fiona Littledale Award is to be given to an Oncology Nurse who has demonstrated their personal commitment to developing their skills and understanding of the field.
