Amanda Simpson, Senior Operational Manager for Rharian Fields, said: “We are of course thrilled to receive this award which is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our staff in providing the highest quality care and treatment for our clients.

“We have some really fantastic outcomes for the people who access our services, with 98% of our clients saying they would recommend Rharian Fields to friends and family and this award confirms that we are providing some of the best care in the country for people with Eating Disorders.”

Secondly, NAViGO were recognised in the Acute Care Pathway category (supported by NHS England), for the innovative way in which acute services are run from Harrison House on Peaks Lane, Grimsby and how these interconnect with other areas of NAViGO giving people who use services a seamless transition throughout their care placing a greater emphasis on service user focused care.

The acute care pathway covers acute inpatients , crisis and home treatment based at  Harrison House which operates a 24 hour service seven days a week.

Ellie Walsh, Senior Operational Manager (Acute and Recovery Services), said: “This national award acknowledges the dedication and commitment by staff to delivering high standards of care across the acute pathway. Competition was hard with a high number of entries in this category and we are so proud to have received it.

“Service user feedback is really import and 93.5% of people who used our service said they would be happy for their friends and family to receive a service from us”.
