A recap of the past few months starting with a Sustainability award followed by this unexpected article written by NHS England
Hello everyone and sorry for the radio silence over the past few months but we have been very busy supplying our embroidered theatre caps to many Hospitals in the UK, whilst also working on new designs and exciting developments which we hope to be able to share with you soon.
Last week we were kindly invited to attend the Northwest Coast Research and Innovation Awards 2022 at Edge Hill University. Liverpool University Hospital asked us to go along due to working so closely with them in implementing our embroidered theatre caps and I am delighted to say that this project won the SUSTAINABILITY AWARD 2022:
Health researchers and innovators from around Cheshire, Merseyside, Lancashire and South Cumbria were celebrated at an NHS awards event.
The North West Coast Research and Innovation Awards recognised outstanding work to improve health and care and find new and innovative ways to deliver services.
A record number of 180 nominations were received, giving judges a tough job to decide winners in 12 categories, announced in an event at Edge Hill University’s Rose Theatre.
BBC North West Tonight presenter Roger Johnson hosted the event, which was also live-streamed to supporters and well-wishers.
In a video message, Matt Whitty, NHS England Director of Innovation, Research and Life Sciences said: “Congratulations to all the finalists and winners in the Northwest Coast Research and Innovation Awards. We need research so we can keep bringing the best new ideas to patients more quickly and the more research that’s done in the UK, the more translatable the results of that research.
“We’ve seen through Covid that we’ve got brand new vaccines and brand-new treatments for Covid and we have got huge amounts of innovation right across the NHS; it is fantastic to see all your innovations.”

This is a fantastic achievement, and the recognition for the reusable name and role Theatre cap project will hopefully encourage other Trusts to make the change also.
