Coventry and Warwickshire Partnership NHS Trust (CWPT) is proud to announce that its Chief Clinical Information Officer (CCIO), Dr Michelle Webster has been nominated for CCIO of the Year in the 2022 Digital Health Awards.

The awards ceremony, which is to be 14 July 2022, celebrates digital achievements of leaders who make the biggest contributions to UK healthcare, through their innovations.

Dr Webster has been nominated for the CCIO of the Year Award in recognition of her instrumental role in delivering CWPT’s vision to become a digital frontrunner for patient care. Dr Webster took up the post of CCIO in 2020, after being Lead Psychologist in the Trust’s Community Mental Health Services. She’s worked at CWPT since 2003.

Dr Sharon Binyon, Medical Director at Coventry and Warwickshire Partnership NHS said, “I am immensely proud, not only of the nomination itself, but also the achievements Michelle has delivered during her relatively short time in the post. The nomination for this prestigious award is particularly impressive considering the position of CCIO is usually held by a doctor. As a Trust we are pushing the boundaries and achieving great things by looking at things differently.”

“In addition, Michelle is the only nomination to have come from a Mental Health Trust in any category at the Digital Health Awards. It’s excellent to see mental health services being considered amongst acute services for innovation in digitisation.”   

Michelle said, “I am very proud to be one of very few Clinical Psychologists to hold this role and to receive this nomination is really the icing on the cake. I am passionate about ensuring digital transformation and ensuring that it is the product of extensive engagement with our staff. I am sure this is the key to our success of our digital innovations programme and this nomination.”

Since taking up the post of CCIO, Dr Webster has implemented several digital initiatives, such as the introduction of Digital Champions at the Trust. Engagement with clinical and corporate services has featured high on her priority list, which has ensured new solutions have been well embedded within the Trust. This was illustrated by her successful facilitation of a whole week of workshops for staff when the Trust held its first Digital Innovation Week in April 2022. Over a thousand CWPT staff joined 19 sessions, which covered subjects such as data security and the use of health apps.
