Staff celebrated at the 2016 Quality Awards

25 November 2016

The winners of the 2016 Quality Awards were announced last night (24 November) during a special ceremony at Twickenham Stadium.

The awards evening, hosted by director of business and strategy Dr Chris Hilton, was an opportunity to celebrate our successes and to recognise some of the trust’s brightest stars.

This year saw more nominations than ever, with more than 400 entries from across the trust describing the incredible compassion and dedication shown by our colleagues every day.

Director of nursing, Beverley Murphy, said: “This is about the people on the shop floor making a difference everyday.”

The Quality Awards is an annual celebration of staff who go above and beyond in their daily working lives and embody our values of togetherness, responsibility, excellence and caring. The awards are judged by a panel of staff, service users and carers.
