Benenden Healthcare named as medallists in major IT awards

14th November 2011

A team of IT staff from the mutual, not-for-profit Benenden Healthcare Society, are today celebrating their status as a ‘Medallist’ in the BCS & Computing UK IT Industry Awards 2011.

Benenden Healthcare had reached the finals of the awards in the ‘IT Department of the Year’ category alongside McDonald’s and the Royal Shakespeare Company.

Whilst the Royal Shakespeare Company took the top prize, Benenden Healthcare were commended as a medallist for their high standards in IT provision over the past 12 months.

The yearly awards are organised by The Chartered Institute for IT in association with Computing Magazine and were announced at a glittering ceremony in London last week.

Gareth Baxendale, Head of IT at Benenden Healthcare, said:

‘This recognition of our high standards at Benenden Healthcare has given the whole IT & Projects team a huge boost.

‘Early last year, the IT function went through a period of significant change by way of a restructure and the adoption of a new IT Programmes department. The team is very proud of what it has accomplished so far since then.’

David Haynes, Head of Programmes, said:

‘We have consistently delivered to the business plan of the Society while adopting new ways of working and managing ourselves through this major period of change.

‘ITS departments often work quietly in the background making sure an organisation has a solid technological base from which to operate – so this chance to celebrate our own version of the Oscars has been fantastic for the team.’

From www.bcs.org: ‘The BCS & Computing UK IT Industry Awards provide a platform for the entire profession to celebrate best practice, innovation and excellence. In total, this year’s Awards featured 23 categories which covered: project, organisation, technology and individual excellence. The categories were open to organisations and individuals involved in IT across the public, not for profit and commercial sectors.’

Quote from BCS: David Clarke, Chief Executive Officer, BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT, says:  ‘On behalf of BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT, I’d like to congratulate all our winners, medallists and finalists. The awards are very rigorously judged so to be a winner or medallist means that you really are the best of the best.

‘The variety of organisations from across different sectors that collected awards this year reinforce the fact that today the IT profession is integrated into the business and is increasingly being seen as a partner that can help deliver real value, benefit and success.

‘It also highlights the extent to which IT is embedded in our society, from our healthcare, the high street and car production, to the stage; IT is the enabler behind so many businesses in the UK.’

Quote from Computing: Abigail Waraker, Editor of Computing comments:  ‘I’d like to congratulate everyone involved in this year’s Awards. It’s great to recognise such excellent achievements and highlight the very real benefit that IT brings to our society. The winners are shining examples of the positive impact that exceptional management and technology skills can bring to the UK.’
