The annual award presented by the AAGBI was won by the developers of an online preoperative assessment programme.
Presented at the AAGBI's Winter Scientific Meeting
in London recently, the awards recognise innovation in anaesthesia and provide a springboard for new ideas.
The winner was Dr Paul Upton for his development of MyPreOp, an online system that allows patients to set up their own account and decide what personal assessment information they share with healthcare providers. Clinicians do not have access to these records, which empowers patients with the management of their care.
Speaking to the AAGBI
, Dr Upton said: "I'm stunned to have won. It came as a great surprise. As a team we see this win as an opportunity to get MyPreOp rolled out across the NHS."
Congratulations to Dr Upton and his team.
