The community NHS trust for Hounslow and Richmond celebrated the achievements of its most dedicated, committed and talented staff at its annual Staff Awards event on Thursday 3 November 2016.
Hounslow and Richmond Community Healthcare NHS Trust’s staff awards recognise and reward the hard work and accomplishments of its staff who go the extra mile for local patients – providing first class care and services.
Over 140 health staff from a wide range of clinical and non-clinical professions were nominated for 7 categories – with a full house attending the awards ceremony event at Twickenham Stoop to find out the winners and runners up.
Individual awards – winners:
The outstanding employee of the year award went to Katie Randall, a team leader for the children’s continuing care service – for going beyond the requirements of her role to help children in need - not just at work, but also outside of work.
Team awards – winners:
Two teams shared the plaudits for this year’s outstanding clinical team category: the first joint-winner – was the trust’s district nursing team for Teddington & Hampton, who were recognised for their work helping local patients in the community; whilst the second joint-winner was the trust’s continence team – rewarded for their vital care and services to help local patients with bladder or bowel dysfunction.
This year’s outstanding non-clinical team award went to the quality and clinical excellence team – a vital support service which supports clinicians to provide the highest level of care and services – providing vital services and advice around audit, information governance, incident reporting and risk management.
Chief executive, Patricia Wright said:
“Our Staff Awards event is a great opportunity to take stock and celebrate our amazing NHS staff – local health heroes who go the extra mile for patients, colleagues and the local community we serve.
“The 140 nominations received for this year’s awards from our patients and staff goes to show the exceptional workforce that we have here at HRCH – and I am immensely proud to lead an organisation with such talented, committed and compassionate staff who do so much to help local people across Hounslow and Richmond.”
The trust also used the occasion to say thank you to its Queen's Nurses - 10 nursing staff (pictured below) from across the organisation who have been awarded this prestigious title by the Queen's Nursing Institute.
