We are delighted to have been nominated for three awards at the Health Service Journal Partnership Awards 2023! Following on from our success at the MCA Awards 2022, we are proud that the impact of our work continues to be recognised. 
We have been shortlisted for: 
Best Consultancy Partnership with the NHS and Most Effective Contribution to Improving Cancer Outcomes: Our work with NHS Breast Screening Recovery project. 

In the aftermath of Covid, which led to a backlog in women waiting for Breast Screening appointments, our team supported NHSE using a three-stage approach focussed around improving the use of data, developing interventions, and supporting the development of the national breast screening team. This work led to a significant reduction in the number of women waiting for screening since October 2020. 
Best Healthcare Analytics Project for the NHS: Our Actionable Insights (Health Inequalities Tool). 

Substantial inequalities in healthcare experiences exist across many programme areas, affecting ethnic minority and deprived communities. Feedback on previous analytical tools that showed figures and charts indicated a need for something interpretable and actionable to address these urgent problems. 
CF has built Actionable Insights, a bespoke tool in NHS Foundry. It detects real inequalities using the technical rigour of a scientific study but presents insights with interpretable, automatically generated sentences and geographical maps. 
The project has benefited from a deeply collaborative approach with NHSE teams and testing with users. It helped introduce many software best practices and statistical techniques to NHS staff. 
Congratulations to all of the teams involved, which have made such significant change in the NHS. We are looking forward to the awards presentation in March!
