As a leading prison healthcare provider, Spectrum was approached by commissioners to deliver a transformation programme at HMP Liverpool, after a report identified systematic failings in healthcare and leadership throughout the prison.
Under the banner of Better Health Liverpool, Spectrum worked with the existing multi-agency nursing team to address imminent risks and overhaul the service strategically, operationally, and clinically. Staff engagement, patient engagement strategies, and workforce development plans were implemented, alongside an improved quality and performance infrastructure with additional training analysis.
The outcome was such that the nursing team was awarded silver medals from the prestigious Chief Nursing Officer for their outstanding work. The award is an enormous accomplishment for Spectrum and the nursing team, acknowledging the passion, commitment and transformational work we are now nationally acclaimed for.
Ruth May, Chief Nursing Officer for NHS England, said: “I was delighted to visit HMP Liverpool and to present the Primary Care Nursing Team with a CNO Award in recognition of their outstanding work and commitment. They are an inspirational team, and it was a pleasure to meet them and personally thank them for their work.”
