MJ Awards Finalist: Delivering Better Outcomes


MJ Awards Finalist: Delivering Better Outcomes

Solving the problem of delayed transfers of care with BedFinder:

Our work with Hertfordshire County Council and their partners has been shortlisted within the Municipal Journal (MJ) Awards. We have been awarded a finalist spot under the category of Delivering Better Outcomes for our work on BedFinder. It is a great honour and adds to the accolades already achieved as an organisation.

The MJ Awards have been held every year since 2004 and celebrate best practice within the local government sphere. Containing 14 different categories, from Delivering Better Outcomes to Excellence in Community Engagement, the awards celebrate excellence. Winning an MJ Award not only allows local authorities to be recognised for the delivery of their services over the last 12 months, but it also allows them to share their expertise with their peers. Each category is judged by influential commentators from the private and public sectors giving their organisation the chance to illustrate its ability, ingenuity and performance.

“BedFinder is a simple concept. It removes the complexity out of booking a room in a care home and gives people their independence back quicker. We are committed to making a difference as an organisation and being recognised within these awards is proof that we have made it.”

This award continues the recent success of BedFinder. From being highlighted on the BBC to numerous online sites picking up the story and being shortlisted in the National Technology Awards. BedFinder makes a difference.

Created to combat the problems associated with delayed discharge of elderly patients from hospital to care, BedFinder makes a difference. It turns the process of searching for suitable vacancies into the equivalent of booking a room in a hotel. A simple yet ground-breaking change.
