Teams recognised at award ceremony

Maudsley Simulation has been crowned winner of the Education Team of the Year at the BMJ (British Medical Journal) awards.

The King’s Health Partners Pathway Homeless Team, which provides holistic and integrated care to homeless people, also scooped Highly Commended in the mental health category.

Maudsley Simulation is the UK’s first simulation training centre focusing on mental health with the aim of improving services for all who are affected or impacted by mental health issues.

Working as part of our Trust since 2014, the team has successfully developed a range of simulation training courses involving actors and technology. So far, they have trained more than 5,000 health professionals.

The team presented to an expert judging panel, including patient representatives, on 10 May, and were announced as the winners at the ceremony later that evening at Park Plaza, Westminster Bridge, London.

Consultant Liaison Psychiatrist and Director of Maudsley Simulation Dr Sean Cross said: "We are incredibly proud to have our hard work and the work of SLaM recognised with such a prestigious award.

"Our outstanding team is truly committed to improving care for people with mental health needs, but we couldn’t do it without the amazing actors and service users who support our training, and of course the wonderful staff who attend and take their learning back into clinical practice to improve care".

Now in its tenth year, the BMJ Awards recognise and celebrate the inspirational work of healthcare teams across the country. Over six months, more than 350 teams submitted entries, with just 60 teams shortlisted and 15 eventual winners.
