Chelsea and Westminster hospital celebrates Personal Fair Diverse Award winners

22 April 2016

Chelsea and Westminster Hospital NHS Foundation Trust has been awarded two NHS Personal Fair Diverse Awards by the NHS Employers organisation.

Chelsea and Westminster Hospital NHS Foundation Trust has been awarded two NHS Personal Fair Diverse Awards by the NHS Employers organisation.  

Lead Nurse for Learning Disabilities and Transition, Kathryn Mangold has won the award for Inclusive Leader of the Year and CliniQ, the holistic sexual health and well-being service for all trans* people, partners and friends was highly commended for the Inclusive Team of the Year award.

The judges said: “Kathryn Mangold and CiniQ are both excellent examples of an ongoing commitment to personalised care and improving patient outcomes.”

Since Kathryn Mangold has been in her role she has introduced initiatives such as the ‘Safe place scheme’ working with local Community Support Officers from the Metropolitan Police to help vulnerable people who have some form of independent living. 

She also led securing the opening of a new Changing Places facility in December 2015, a first of its kind in an acute trust in London. It is different to a standard or ‘disabled’ toilet as it includes an extra wide changing bench, a hoist system and more space for the disabled person and their carers.

CliniQ provides a safe, confidential space for those who may not feel comfortable accessing more traditional sexual health and well-being services. The clinic has been recognised for its unique approach to this valuable service. 

The Personal Fair Diverse NHS campaign has created a vibrant network of champions who are committed to taking action, however small, to create a personal, fair and diverse NHS.

CliniQ and Kathryn Mangold will be presented with the awards in May.
