Delivering excellence in everything we do is the bedrock of our Trust and this quality shines brightly through our staff award winners.
Our 2017 staff awards ceremony topped off what was – without doubt – one of the most dramatic and exciting years in the history of our Trust.
It was a double celebration as we also held our volunteer long service awards and named our volunteer of the year. This was an opportunity to thank all of our volunteers for their continued dedication and support to our patients, staff and visitors at the Trust.
This year we had six awards up for grabs; there were three prizes for Team of the Year and single winners for the other awards, which are awarded to outstanding individuals – either clinical or non-clinical. The quality of nominations was extremely high and our judging panels had a difficult task.
One team, many talents
The Executive Team was bowled over by the fantastic response to our Brilliant Bradford staff awards, and chose ‘One Team, Many Talents’ as our theme for the awards, because we felt it summed up everything that makes our Trust such a special place.
Here in Bradford we’re one team made up of many talents, all striving to provide high quality patient care by pooling our collective expertise.
I want to say a very big thank-you, on behalf of the Board, to Russ Piper, Chief Executive of Sovereign Healthcare, for their generous sponsorship of the prizes. This is the 18th year that Sovereign has supported our awards, and we are delighted to continue our close working relationship.
Of course, someone had to win, but the evening was a celebration of the achievements of all our nominees.
