The efforts and achievements of some of our outstanding members of staff were celebrated on the evening Thursday (22nd November) with the #TeamKHFT Annual Staff Awards, at the beautiful Rose Theatre in Kingston.
The annual awards, supported by Kingston Hospital Charity, honoured staff for the difference they have made to the Trust, their colleagues and patients, across 7 categories and 18 awards.
The awards, hosted by the wonderful Angelica Bell, TV Presenter and winner of the 2017 Celebrity Masterchef, recognised staff for providing excellent care; coming up with new innovations; improving patient safety; transforming patient services; and those who go the extra mile each and every day.
A record 370 nominations were initially whittled down to a shortlist of 36 with the winners and runner ups in each category announced at the ceremony.
Sian Bates, KHFT Chair, said: "The Annual Staff Awards celebrate the amazing work of our colleagues across the Trust. It has been inspiring to hear about the dedication, commitment and compassion of all those who were nominated.
"I would like to say a huge thank you and congratulations to all of the nominees and winners for everything they do on a daily basis to ensure we provide a high quality, caring service."
Ann Radmore, Chief Executive added: "I am very proud of all of our staff who work tirelessly to ensure our service users can recover and live their best life. These awards are about recognising some of the excellent work being carried out across our organisation and all those who were nominated should feel extremely proud of their achievements.
"Everyone nominated for an Award represents the strong values which the Trust is built on, and I thank them for their hard work and commitment – their achievements clearly demonstrate why we received an ‘Outstanding’ rating from the CQC earlier this year."
