The National Clinical Audit of Anxiety and Depression (NCAAD) was awarded the 2019 Richard Driscoll Memorial Award which recognises outstanding work in patient and public involvement. The programme won based on outstanding patient leadership that led to a change in how they designed their annual report and direct impact from extensive PPI in their governance.

Their case study demonstrates a shared decision making process with the PPI group and the impact of service user involvement on the project.

The 2019 Richard Driscoll Memorial Award took place at HQIP’s Annual General Meeting on November 14th in honour of HQIP’s former Chair of Trustees, a passionate life-long ambassador for patient care, who sadly passed away in 2017. The award recognizes HQIP commissioned clinical audits and reviews on the basis of their robust and sustained patient involvement.
