Hexarad out-of-hours radiology technology wins Silver at HSJ Partnership Awards

5 Apr 2024

Hexarad’s radiology technology has won Silver at the HSJ Partnership Awards 2024 for a project with North West Anglia NHS Foundation Trust to improve out-of-hours radiology services and cut A&E delays. The overall time saved from using Hexarad’s technology platform for out-of-hours radiology is equivalent to one extra clinician per shift in a ten-doctor department. To achieve this same outcome, a hospital would need to spend £365,000 per annum on locum agency fees. 


The HSJ Partnership Awards recognise outstanding dedication to improving healthcare and effective collaboration with the NHS, and are a “stamp of approval” which can be instrumental in securing future projects and partnerships in the NHS, particularly as ICSs move from planning to delivery. 


Dr Amy Davis, Hexarad Chief Commercial Officer, commented: “We are so pleased that the HSJ Partnership Awards has recognised our innovative technology and the real-world impact it is having in the NHS. This is a testament to the commitment and hard work of the Hexarad team and to our partners at North West Anglia NHS Foundation Trust, who have been so supportive and enthusiastic about the initial pilot and wider roll-out of our technology.” 


HSJ editor Alastair McLellan comments: “HSJ created the Partnership Awards in 2018 to celebrate and recognise the vital contribution made by the suppliers of goods and services to the quality and development of British healthcare. This year’s awards demonstrate there is almost no NHS clinical or support service which does not rely – sometimes almost completely – on the efforts of external suppliers. 


“Almost any attempt to improve NHS productivity – the service’s greatest challenge – without working in concert with suppliers starts at a major disadvantage. Indeed, many of the best ideas for improving productivity do and will come from suppliers. Every one of the businesses on the Partnership Awards shortlist has shown the kind of thinking and determination it takes to deliver change in healthcare services. They should all be very proud of the efforts, our 28 winners especially so.” 


The winners were selected following a rigorous two-stage judging process ahead of the HSJ Partnership Awards 2024 awards ceremony. The full list of 2024 HSJ Partnership Awards Winners can be found at https://partnership.hsj.co.uk/winners-2024.
