NHS Leeds Clinical Commissioning Group shortlisted for CIPR Yorkshire and Lincolnshire PRide Awards

The work of the NHS Leeds Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) communications team has been recognised with a double nomination in the 2019 CIPR Yorkshire and Lincolnshire Pride Awards.

The team have been nominated in the internal communications campaign category for their work to engage and involve colleagues across a newly-merged organisation, while also taking into account more flexible working patterns and limited time in the office for those in clinical roles.

The second nomination was for the CCG’s ‘MindMate’ initiative, which provides online mental health and wellbeing resources and support to young people, carers and professionals. The project was shortlisted in the public health campaigns category for its success in breaking down barriers in mental health.

Tim Ryley, Chief Executive Officer at NHS Leeds CCG said “Both nominations reflect the excellent work going on throughout the organisation.

“The nomination for MindMate is great recognition for all those involved in its creation and development, especially the young people of Leeds who have helped shape it at every step.  It’s a testament to all the hard work that  has gone into the MindMate website to make sure it meets the needs of young people, professionals, parents and carers.”

He added, “The communications team have also done a fantastic job in keeping such a fluid workforce connected during a period of great change.”

The CIPR PRide Awards are among the most prestigious awards in the communications industry. They recognise and celebrate the outstanding work communications professionals and teams have been delivering for clients and employers.. The winners are selected by a team of leading industry experts and will be revealed at an awards ceremony in Leeds on Thursday 21 November.
