Last month, we attended the #PENNA23 awards as part of our partnership work with the Prehabilitation Service for Cancer Patients at City Hospital, Nottingham.

The Patient Experience Network (PEN) is an independent, ‘not for profit’, service provider and membership-based network. PEN is founded upon an understanding of the importance of a great experience – whether this is for patients, carers or staff.

Our Link Workers help patients access support in their local communities, ensuring a holistic and personalised Prehab Programme is provided. Patients due to undergo certain cancer surgeries are referred to our service by their cancer nurse specialist.

We were shortlisted for 2 awards:

  • Partnership Working to Improve the Experience
  • Personalisation of Care

We were all so happy and overwhelmed that we won BOTH awards! It was a very proud day and we met and listened to some inspirational people and services. Our thanks to Abi (Lead Matron for the Prehab Service) for the nominations.
