Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) has become one of the first NHS trusts to win a national award for its annual report.
The Trust won the Building Public Trust Awards 2019 – the Public Sector category (in partnership with the National Audit Office) with judges saying the report was engaging, relevant and reliable and contained timely information without unnecessary clutter.
They also said it achieved a fine balance between the three pillars of reporting – content, quality and integration.
The judging process included a number of stages and also involved members of the public who were part of the People’s Panel.
Anna Ferrant, Company Secretary for GOSH, had overall responsibility for the annual report.
“I am delighted GOSH has won this award especially as we are one of the first NHS trusts to do so. A lot of hard work goes into creating an annual report so to have this recognised is fantastic. It is an important document that gives our stakeholders including partners, patients, parents and members an open and honest account of the past year at GOSH.
“A huge thank you to all those who contributed to this year’s annual report and to our brand team who created such an engaging document.”
The Building Public Trust Awards is now in its 17th year and celebrates organisations who are leading the way in open, authentic and accessible reporting and communications. The awards cover all parts of the economy and issues that matter to society.
