Nursing Times Awards


Essity Sponsored the Continence Care and Promotion category at this years

Nursing Times Awards held on October 27th in London.

We are delighted to announce the winners of the award - The University of the West of England for the launch of CONfidence- the continence promotion app.

A national collaboration team of clinical experts, patients and public partners developed a self help app to bridge the gap between people experiencing symptons and seeking

advice. It was launched in 2021 and the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive.

Well done to all the runners up including:

  • Central Cheshire integrated partnership - Community bladder and bowel service.

  • Derbyshire Community Health Service NHF FT - Youtube videos of bladder scan appointments during Covid 19 pandemic.

  • Positive about Downs Syndrome - Transforming children's lives - toilet training via the internet.

  • Powys Teaching Health Board - How digital transformation has filed the void.

  • University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust - Continence in-reach service, promoting continence in the acute Trust.
