Superstar staff and teams celebrated at annual ceremony
Last week 450 colleagues from across CLCH came together to celebrate theirs and colleagues' success at our 2019 staff awards ceremony.
On the night, 20 awards were presented to teams and individuals whom their colleagues and judges felt excelled in their roles and went above and beyond in making the Trust a great place to work and provider of high-quality care to service-users.
Hosted by Dominic Bellringer-Mundy, our assistant director of patient experience, and Emily Keeble, our assistant director of patient safety, staff from all over the Trust cheered and praised winners and those highly commended for the awards. Each award was presented by members of the Trust Board and our chief executive, Andrew Ridley, said: "This year we received almost 700 nominations, which is testament itself to the amazing teams and individuals who work at CLCH. Our staff awards are a special time of year, when we take a moment to celebrate and appreciate just a fraction our NHS staff who pour their hearts into caring for their patients every day".
Ranging from corporate services individual of the year to the modelling the way award, all award categories recognised the various ways that our staff contribute to our Trust and excel in their specific professions.
In addition to our amazing comedian, Matt Hutchinson, who entertained the audience brilliantly and kept all amused. Our surprise performance from Mervic Monocillo, one of our district nurses, blew the crowd away with her rendition of 'Nessun dorma', to receive a standing ovation.
Angela Greatley OBE, our chair said: "It is a huge priviledge to hear stories of such dedication and commitment from staff from across areas of the Trust and every year I am left in awe of their achievements. Huge congratulations to all our winners and nominees".
