Shortlist announced for Trust’s Celebrating Success Awards

With more than 500 nominations our judges had a difficult task selecting their shortlist for this year’s Trust recognition awards, Celebrating Success.

The panel members were impressed with the outstanding quality of entries which made selecting a top three in each category exceedingly difficult.

The Patients’ Award attracted the largest number of entries with 200 nominations received from our patients.

“This is a record-breaking number and we are delighted so many people who have received treatment from us have taken the time to commend both clinical and non-clinical staff. Competition was particularly tough in this section and four shortlisted candidates have been announced” said Trust Chairman, Ian Johnson.

“Due to the high standard of nominations, the decisions were incredibly tight with a number of nominations deserving recognition,” he added. “It was inspiring to read the stories of staff that had gone the extra mile or transformed services for the benefit of all our patients.”

This year’s Panel consisted of:

Chairman Ian Johnson, Chief Executive Wendy Swift, Public Governor Sue Crouch, Director of Nursing and Quality, Marie Thompson, Staff Side representative Barry Casey, Chairman of Radio Wave John Barnett and his wife, Danielle.
