Award for Roald Dahl Centre

Blood disease specialists at the Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospitals NHS Trust have been recognised for making a difference to both patients and staff in the North West.

Professor Cheng Toh, consultant haematologist, and his team at the Roald Dahl Centre were awarded the ‘Team Outstanding Achievement – Clinical’ award at the 2016 NHS North West Leadership Academy Awards.

The awards celebrate the fantastic work that is going on across the North West and showcase its leaders’ and teams’ hard work, perseverance and the positive impact they have.

The Trust’s Academic Palliative Care Unit, Nuclear Medicine Department and sepsis improvement team were also shortlisted across three separate categories in the 2016 NHS North West Leadership Academy Awards, recognising exceptional patient experience, great leadership, living the NHS values and outstanding teamwork.

The Roald Dahl Centre, located within the Royal Liverpool University Hospital, opened in 2001. It received funding from the Roald Dahl Foundation because of the vision to deliver “Marvellous Medicine” to patients with blood conditions.

Its reputation has grown and is one of a few nationally accredited Haemophilia Comprehensive Care centres that has also achieved European accreditation. In addition, it is also accredited nationally for Haemoglobinopathy services, which includes sickle cell disease.

Professor Cheng-Hock Toh, clinical lead for the Roald Dahl Centre, said: “It is fantastic to receive this award as it reinforces the high standards of care that we provide to our patients on a daily basis.

“We have developed a very comprehensive care service for patients with blood disorders and regularly receive positive feedback about how welcoming our clinic is. Roald Dahl was a much-loved character; it’s important for us that our service is much-loved by our patients.”
