MEDICS in south Warwickshire cracked open the bubbly to celebrate scooping a prestigious award.

South Warwickshire University NHS Foundation Trust’s Integrated Frailty Service won a national NHS Parliamentary Award in recognition of its innovative and proactive thinking.

The team were chosen as the regional winners in the ‘Excellence in Urgent and Emergency Care’ category from hundreds of nominations sent by Midlands MPs.

SWFT’s service then went head-to-head with other regional winners from across the country, before being chosen as the national winner of this category by a panel of senior leaders representing staff and patients.




SWFT’s Integrated Frailty Service were presented the award during a ceremony on Wednesday (July 5) at the House of Commons.

The service supports frail older adults in crisis to avoid unnecessary hospital admissions and provide hospital standard care in a patient’s home environment.


SWFT spokesperson Adam Carson said: “The national NHS long term plan places huge significance on not just treating people, but also preventing them from getting ill in the first place. Our Trust’s Integrated Frailty Team has fully embraced this movement. Through innovation, strong leadership, collaborative working and team vision, the service has shifted their culture to prevention by adhering to a home first mindset.

“This award recognises the team’s dedication and tireless efforts to transform the delivery of urgent and emergency care to make a real difference in improving patient outcomes and experience. As an organisation we are extremely proud that our team has been acknowledged in this way.”
