Winner of HSJ award 2016
The MISSION project won a prestigious HSJ award in 2016 for Innovation in Primary Care. Here is a quote from their website: "Portsmouth Hospitals Trust with Wessex AHSN - Mission: asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease projects The trust designed the Mission projects to identify patients on GP registers at risk of asthma, and then chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), so they could receive swift community-based assessment. Results from the asthma scheme included a 67 per cent cut in emergency department visits, while the follow-up COPD project slashed such visits by 97 per cent in month five. Judges hailed the “patient-focused” scheme."
