Effective clinical leadership can have a hugely beneficial impact on the care of patients. The BMJ Group Clinical Leadership award recognises motivational and inspirational leaders who have led clinical teams with vision and clarity.
Last year we had over 100 nominations. The winners of this category were Adrian Hopper and Mark Kinirons, whose efforts have helped to reduce patients' lengths of stay and mortality at Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust, London.
Dr Mark Kinirons said: "This award gives a quality assurance to our work and will enable us to lever more change. Winning this enables us to help other acute trusts by emulating our learning and transforming it locally as they can."
In the awards' first year, first place went to Miss Stella Vig, clinical lead for general surgery and trauma/orthopaedics and urology at Mayday Healthcare NHS Trust, Croydon. Miss Vig had been central to the development of the Diabetic, Vascular and Wound Care Centre at Mayday University Hospital, Thornton Heath. She has worked with hospital management and primary care trust commissioners to bring together a large multidisciplinary team, and the 2009 care model showed a 30% reduction in major amputations over three years and greater independence for patients.
