The Somerset Community Dietetic Team has been awarded the "Outstanding Contribution of the Year Award" in the 2019 Digital Health Awards. They received the award for designing a series of webinars to provide easily accessible help and information for patients.
The Team have posted the following message :
"As well as a huge thank you to those that voted, it is also really important to note that the webinars would never have got off the ground without the fantastic support of the gastroenterology team at Yeovil District Hospital, particularly Jim Gotto, Steve Gore, Lin Mear as well as Judith Scull, Senior Partner at Millbrook Surgery in Castle Cary.
We all worked together in 2017 as part of an NHS England 100 Day project and it was their unquestioning support that made the webinar project possible - A HUGE thank you to them."
