Derby Health Inequalities Partnership wins NHS Communicate Award!


One of our programmes, the Derby Health Inequalities Partnership (DHIP) has won the Working in Partnership category of the NHS Communicate Awards, in partnership with the NHS Derby and Derbyshire Integrated Care Board!

The NHS Communicate Awards is a virtual event to to recognise the achievements of communicators across the NHS and celebrate innovation in the sector, teams and individuals who have delivered highly effective communications, to support delivery at a local, regional and national level.

The 2024 Awards took place on Wednesday 6 and Thursday 7 March and it was announced that we had won the Working in Partnership Award for the 'Hypertension, going further and faster' work we did in partnership with the NHS Derby and Derbyshire ICB.

The Working in Partnership Award recognises communications teams who have successfully worked collaboratively and in partnership with other organisations e.g. social care, local authorities, charitable and voluntary sectors and private on a successful communications and engagement project or campaign.

The hypertension (high blood pressure) project was a community-led drive to tackle high blood pressure, where we trained up DHIP Community Connector volunteers to take blood pressure readings out in the community.

BBC East Midlands recently visited us to film a piece on the project - you can read about that here
