Spotlight on Credera’s Highly Commended MCA award and finalists

Kelly Jackson

We are delighted to announce that Credera has won a highly commended award at the 2021 MCA awards.

The MCA awards is one of the most renowned events in the consulting industry, recognising the top contributions that management consultancies and individuals have made to clients and the industry itself.

Credera also secured five finalists in the MCA awards from five different categories: Performance Improvement in the Public Sector, Outstanding Achievement, Exceptional Support and Delivery by a Consultant during COVID-19, Thought Leader Consultant of the Year, and Team Leader Consultant of the Year.

Chris Dean, CEO, said: “I’m very proud of each of our 2021 MCA Awards finalists – it is an impressive achievement to have won a Highly Commended Award and to have five finalists nominated. Credera’s success at the MCA Awards speaks volumes about the talent and dedication of our staff and their ability to create an extraordinary, lasting impact for our clients and community.”

Kelly Jackson, MCA Lead, added: “The MCA have excelled in delivering the awards in what has been a challenging year, and the level of competition for the awards has reached an all-time high. I’m absolutely thrilled for each of our finalists and I’m so pleased that their hard work has been recognised by the MCA, our clients, and the consulting industry.”

We caught up with members of the NHSD project team and each of our finalists to discover their reactions to the awards:

Performance Improvement in the Public Sector: HSCN  
Finalist and
Highly Commended Award

Graham Hall, Credera’s public sector lead, said: “The HSCN project team from Credera have delivered outstanding work for the NHS over a complex, but highly rewarding, four-year programme.

We're really proud of each individual within the HSCN project team, so winning this prestigious Highly Commended award is a true testament to their hard work.’
 

Doug Howe, project lead, added: ‘It’s an absolute privilege to have represented the HSCN team and not only be shortlisted but receive highly commended recognition from the MCA for the 'Performance Improvement in the Public Sector' award. It was a great experience working alongside our NHS Digital colleagues in delivering a true invest to save programme that had a tangible benefit to the NHS ahead of difficult pandemic times. It’s great that this has been recognised by the MCA."

 

Louise O’Donovan and Scott Blayney played key roles on this project. We asked them how they felt about the recognition:

“It has been a privilege to work alongside the HSCN team,” Louise said. “I am incredibly proud of what we have managed to achieve and reflect on the positive impacts that our work will have on the NHS both now and for years to come.”

“Being part of a fantastic Credera team in partnership with NHS Digital to deliver one of Europe’s largest and complex network transformation programmes has been an amazing experience,” said Scott. “The team worked extremely hard over the course of four years to make this programme a success and deliver tangible benefits and cost savings to the NHS, so for the team to be recognised and receive this prestigious reward is quite literally the icing on the cake.”

We also asked our other finalists to give their view on being shortlisted for MCA Awards.
