The Trust is pleased to share its success at the North West London Health Equity Summit.
The event happened on Tuesday 24 October with more than 200 people from across North West London gathered in St Paul's in Hammersmith.
This marked the first health equity summit for the area and is an opportunity to reflect on what has been achieved and the health and social care challenges ahead.
The summit finished with the presentation of the first North West London Health Equity Awards.
The aim of the awards was to celebrate people from North West London who are going above and beyond to tackle health inequalities and promote fairer access to health care.
There were a total of 85 nominations as part of the awards.
We're pleased to share that Anthony Sembatya, Project Manager of Refugee Recruitment in North West London, and Nathan Christie-Plummer, Deputy Director of Workforce, both won an award for their work as part of the North West London Refugee Recruitment Programme.
A spokesman from the North West London ICB said: "Anthony Sembatya and Nathan Christie-Plummer from West London NHS Trust for their work developing a rapid recruitment pathway for refugees and asylum seekers to find employment and volunteering opportunities and access pastoral care in the NHS across NW London."
We're also pleased to share that the West London tri-borough perinatal mental health service was highly commended along with the Nexus Project led by Dr Lindsay Dewa.
