Staff recognised at annual Celebration of Achievement Awards
On Thursday (1 October 2015) over 250 staff from York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust will gather at Scarborough Spa to recognise and celebrate the work of colleagues from across the Trust.
The Celebration of Achievement Awards are the Trust’s annual staff recognition awards. Staff, visitors and patients were invited to make a nomination to recognise the work of an outstanding staff member or team. This year the Trust received its highest ever number of entries with over 250 nominations.
Patrick Crowley, Chief Executive at York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, said: “The Celebration of Achievement Staff Recognition Awards have become a valuable and highly regarded way of honouring colleagues who have excelled in their achievements and service for the Trust and to the patients, families and clients we serve.
“This year we received our highest ever number of entries with over 250 nominations. This was a tremendous achievement in itself and demonstrates the fantastic work that is taking place across the Trust.
“This event gives us the opportunity to reflect on and to recognise the contributions everyone makes, every day in the NHS. I am very much looking forward to Thursday’s event. Last year’s ceremony was filled with truly inspirational stories of patient care and innovation and gave everyone a small insight into the diversity of skills, expertise and contributions that people make every day in our Trust.”
The winners will be announced on the Trust’s Twitter and Facebook pages.
