Rowan Hillson Inpatient Safety Award 2021

We are inviting colleagues to submit entries to this year’s competition which will be:

Best intervention during the COVID-19 pandemic that has maintained inpatient safety for people with diabetes’

This JBDS – IP project is being led by Dr Umesh Dashora and Erwin Castro. The submissions will be judged against predetermined criteria, by an independent panel chaired by Rowan Hillson, and the winner will be presented with the prestigious annual Rowan Hillson Inpatient Safety Award at the ABCD Spring meeting 2021. The outcome of this initiative will be published on the ABCD, Diabetes UK and DISN UK Group websites to share excellent practice. 

Competitive applications are likely to be those that show hard evidence of benefit, that are translatable to other Trusts, are costed, are relatively simple and sustainable, and which have been commissioned or supported by an Acute Trust. This competition is open to all UK health care professionals. 


The attached document outlines the application form and the closing date has been extended to 19th March 2021
