The VERT team at the Ipswich radiotherapy department has been shortlisted for Professionalism in Practice category in the Advancing Healthcare Awards 2014The VERT team at the Ipswich radiotherapy department has been shortlisted for Professionalism in Practice category in the Advancing Healthcare Awards 2014

This is especially rewarding as it was not the original category the team had been nominated in.

The team comprises Alex Knights (Clinical Lecturer/Senior Radiographer), Louisa Alder (Physicist) and Dean Garnham (Treatment Specialist Radiographer).

The team has been involved in a number of initiatives using VERT. They were nominated for the award in recognition of their work using VERT for the delivery of patient information sessions, which they run monthly in the radiotherapy department.

The category they have been short-listed for recognises teams or individuals working in healthcare science which exemplify how first-class professionalism delivered in day-to-day practice drives excellent care and improved outcomes.

On 26 February, Alex and Louisa presented the team's work to the judging panel at the Society of Radiographers' headquarters in London. They will find out if they have been successful at the awards ceremony at the Grand Connaught Rooms London on 11 April.
