Dedicated staff at Broadmoor Hospital recognised by High Sheriffs

05 Mar 2019

Six Broadmoor Hospital staff yesterday (Monday 4 March) received awards for their outstanding work and dedication from the High Sheriffs of Berkshire and Buckinghamshire, Graham Barker and Ruth Farwell.

The presentations took place at a special ceremony at the Hospital. This has become an annual event as successive high sheriffs have wanted to recognise the care and compassionate of staff.

The Lord Lieutenant of Berkshire, James Puxley, was also in attendance this year.

Awards were presented to the following staff:

Dr Shaun Bhattacherjee (Consultant)
For his commitment to excellence in the quality of care for patients.

Abayomi Odubiyi-Felix (Team Leader)
For demonstrating the highest values and being a true inspiration to colleagues and patients.

Val O’Connor (Building Operative)
For demonstrating a high level of commitment and exemplary values.

Simon Froud (Security Support Supervisor)
For embodying the Trust values of Togetherness, Responsibility, Excellence and Caring.

Jason Taplin (Healthcare Facilitator)
For demonstrating the highest values and for being an outstanding colleague.

Terry Fegan (Nurse Consultant)
For demonstrating excellence in the running of the Patient Forum.

Trust’s Director of High Secure and Forensic Services, Leeanne McGee said: “This has been a successful year for Broadmoor with their recent ‘good’ rating from the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and ‘outstanding’ for caring. It’s a real pleasure to welcome back our local High Sheriffs for the second year running to recognise the dedication and hard work of our staff.

“It takes many types of clinical and non-clinical staff to run a complex hospital like Broadmoor, so I’m pleased that the awards reflect the range of people who work here, from doctors and nurses to security staff.”

High Sheriff of the Royal County of Berkshire, Graham Barker said: “As High Sheriff of the Royal County of Berkshire I am proud and privileged to be recognising the excellence of staff at Broadmoor Hospital by presenting these Awards to staff with my colleague, Professor Ruth Farwell, the High Sheriff of Buckinghamshire. When visiting the Hospital, I have been struck by the dedication of the staff at Broadmoor and these High Sheriff’s Awards aim to give recognition to some of the best of people who work there.”
