Bright Ideas Awards

The Bright Ideas in Health Awards were held on Thursday 21st May at Hilton Newcastle Gateshead Hotel.

The awards are delivered by NHS Innovations North, on behalf of the Academic Health Science Network for the North East and Cumbria, in conjunction with the NIHR North East and North Cumbria Clinical Research Network.

The competition encourages, celebrates and rewards the outstanding innovations and excellence emerging from frontline NHS staff, CCG employees and SMEs in our region.

There were numerous awards categories, but, in the Service Improvement Category...the winner was..the CRESTA Fatigue Clinic!

The Newcastle CRESTA Clinic for fatigue associated with chronic illness (located at the old Newcastle General Hospital site) is modelled on a 
pain clinic, combining expertise from psychology, physiotherapy, OT, and sleep therapy, in each consultation, plus the support of health champions. The programme does not eliminate fatigue, but provides coping strategies.

Prof Julia Newton
Sister Lynne Hogg
Vincent Deary
Kate Hackett
Victoria Strassheim
Dr Zoe M Gotts
Rebecca Lambson
Health Champions
