Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust was awarded Sustainability Project of the Year at this year's Institute of Healthcare Engineering and Estate Management (IHEEM)'s Healthcare Estates awards dinner held in Manchester on Tuesday 10 October 2017. 

The award was given in recognition of the Trust's Hospitals Energy Project. 

Collecting the award on behalf of OUH, Claire Hennessy, Head of Operational Estates, said: "I am very honoured to accept this award from IHEEM on behalf of colleagues from the Trust, the CEF, Vital Energi, and all the contractors who have all worked so tirelessly to deliver this complex project.

"It was a hotly contested category, so we are delighted to win the award in the face of such competition.

"The meticulous planning and collaborative partnership between ourselves and Vital Energi has enabled us to deliver the replacement of our energy and heating provision in both hospitals without impacting on either hospital's patient care. It is good to see the new CHP, Energy Link and boilers up and running and that we are already ahead of target in financial and carbon emission savings."
