During the COVID-19 pandemic, our Over the past year, we have seen so much public play in delivering excellent care for patients. Here at Royal Papworth Hospital, Laudit has been a great way for us to quickly and easily celebrate the everyday extraordinary things that and our patients. At Royal Papworth Hospital, we have an excellent culture of reporting adverse events and are grateful to our quality and risk team for instilling this ethos. However, before Laudit, we did not have a robust mechanism in place for the day-to-day reporting of positive events. This is something we need to do more of across the NHS, and here at Laudit has been recognised as an outstanding example of caring practice in a Care Quality Commission (CQC) report in 2019 and the domains within the Laudit reporting system mirror the CQC framework.

As the pandemic took hold, we saw a steep rise in submissions, with over 1,700 between March 2020 and March 2021 alone. I have no doubt that these Laudits really boosted morale during what was a very stressful time. Im thrilled that such a fantastic idea came from one of our own clinicians and that we have been supported by Eastern AHSN to develop the initiative further. It would be great to see Laudit adopted nationally so we can identify and celebrate the NHS heroes everywhere.
