Havering’s mental health trust is in the running to win two national healthcare awards.
The North East London Foundation Trust, based in Goodmayes Hospital, has been nominated in the ‘Healthcare IT’ and ‘Patient Safety’ categories of the Health Business Awards.
The awards recognise the contributions of organisations and individuals working inside and alongside the NHS across 19 categories, focusing on facilities, specialism and innovation.
The former award nomination, sponsored by tech company Fujitsu, recognises NELFT’s MyMind app, aimed at improving adolescent mental health care.
The app directs users to approved advice and support and enables them to manage their recovery journey with appointment reminders and access to care plans, and has video messaging technology to encourage communication with their clinicians.

The Patient Safety award nomination recognises the Trust’s ‘Significant 7 Training Package’ - created in collaboration with the Barking, Havering and Redbridge Clinical Commissioning Group - an early warning tool and training package for care home staff.
The package supports nurses in identifying the needs of the care home residents through interactive training.
Nurse Consultant Geraldine Rodgers said: “We were genuinely surprised and delighted to be nominated for the Patient Safety Award.
