Chief Executive David Bradley said: “I felt honoured to celebrate the hard work, dedication and achievements of our staff. Across the NHS and particularly in mental health, our jobs can be very tough and complex and the work environment is often challenging. This means it is really important that we properly recognise the fantastic and inspirational work that our colleagues do, each and every day across the trust. A huge well done to all our finalists and well-deserved winners”.
The judging panel was selected from across the trust and included service users and carers as well as staff judges. The awards were made possible through our Anchor grants programme.
