Anna Awoliyi has won the “Digital Champion” section of the BAME Health and Care Awards 2021 for the way she implemented a system that enabled patients to have booked ‘virtual’ visits from their relatives using hospital computer tablets.

The BAME Health and Care Awards recognise the contribution and achievements of staff from black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) backgrounds and more than 100 individuals and teams from health services across the country were shortlisted for the awards. 

Anna said: “I’m so happy to see the impact that this is having on the patients in our care. In a time of Covid this has made a huge difference with their families that are in our care. “As an organisation, we take a family-centred approach to care. This ensures patients wellbeing is looked after.”
