Staff celebrate big wins at Staff Awards

We have been celebrating some of the outstanding work carried out by the Trust at the staff awards ceremony for 2023.

As many as 116 nominations were put forward by those at the Trust, spanning over seven different categories; five of which reflect the core CARES (Communication, Attitude, Responsibility, Equity, Safety) values that our staff live by every day.

Ashifa Trivedi, a divisional lead pharmacist in the Pharmacy Team, scooped the CARES Communication Award, having been praised for her superb communications skills and positive attitude towards colleagues and patients alike.

The CARES Attitude Award went to the Stroke Unit for their work in overseeing a huge amount of change in recent times.

Dr Basaam Aweid was highlighted for the ‘amazing job’ he has done in listening, teaching and supporting the team. Emily Hodgkinson, Madeleine Gifford, Helen Gratrick and Maria Robinson were also all praised for helping keep everyone in the team feel involved and valued.

The Spiritual and Pastoral Care Team were given the responsibility award for being a ‘shining example’ of their commitment to the Trust’s five values.

The volunteers in the team have been described as being at the ‘forefront’ of re-establishing a flourishing and diverse group which lends a caring and compassionate voice to patients and staff across both of our hospitals.

The CARES Equity Award was handed out to the Alderbourne Team for their handling of an extremely sensitive case which ended up at the High Court, regarding a patient with a significant brain injury.

The team led by Dr Ajoy Nair were praised for the high level of care and respect they offered to the patient, family and colleagues throughout the difficult time.

Clinical Nurse Specialists from Unplanned Care Team who were redeployed as a result of industrial action by junior doctors received the CARES Safety Award.

The support they gave to their consultant colleagues, after putting their normal roles on hold, was called ‘invaluable’ and helped to ensure the safety of patients during an extremely busy and stressful period.

Activity co-ordinator Linda Vardon was the recipient of the CEO’s Award for going ‘above and beyond’ with every patient.

Her hard work, dedication and professionalism in looking after patients for more than 30 years sees patients looking and feeling ‘a million dollars’ when they leave the hospital.

The team at Medical Haematology Day Care picked up the Chair’s Award for enabling a new service to deliver multiple sclerosis medications locally at Hillingdon.

Receptionist Michael Costa was rewarded with the Unsung Hero Award. He has been described as ‘a credit to the hospital’ for his polite and caring nature towards patients and colleagues.

The final award of the night, the Special Board Award, went to the Trust's Redevelopment Team for their commitment and hard work to progress our plans to provide a state-of-the-art hospital for the residents, which supports the very best in delivery of healthcare.
