Healthwatch Awards

Staff members from York Hospital were recognised at the recent Healthwatch ‘Making a Difference Awards’, which celebrate excellence in health and social care services.

Nominations are made by the public and recognise all types of achievements from a range of services including GP services, care providers, dentists, pharmacists and hospital departments.

Siân Balsom, Healthwatch York Manager, said: “Often when people talk about feedback they think only about complaints, what isn’t working, and how things could and should be better. But we routinely hear about individuals and services delivering great care every day.

“Improving health and social care services in our city is has as much to do with learning about things that work and sharing best practice as it is about addressing issues raised. We are delighted to recognise some of the excellent work that people do day in and day out to make their services the best they can be for everyone.”

Trust staff recognised at the event were Tania Brosnan and the team at the Magnolia Centre, Chris Brewer, Consultant, Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Chandy Koria, Physiotherapist and the physiotherapy team, Susan Gill, Specialist Optometrist and Laura Wakely, Consultant Ophthalmologist, David Alexander and his team and Ben Mancey-Jones.
