For You Thank You – Staff Awards 2015

For You Thank You – Staff Awards 2015

There was a buzz in the air as staff and volunteers gathered to celebrate their achievements and find out who had been crowned the winners gathered at the 2014/15 For You, Thank You staff awards ceremony at the Floral Pavilion, New Brighton on Thursday 26 February. Up against fierce competition from more there were 132 nominations in total across a diverse range of community health services.


After a warm welcome from Trust Chairman, Frances Street, and Chief Executive Simon Gilby the evening quickly got into full swing, starting with the launch of the 'Hello my name is...' campaign.


Then host Billy Butler got the award presentations underway, whilst keeping the crowd entertained with his legendary banter.


Patient Choice Award


For the first time, the trust had invited nominations from patients, their families and carers for those individuals or teams who they felt had given them outstanding care and a fantastic patient experience that went beyond their expectations.


The nominations told many inspirational stories, and a panel of public members chose the nomination for Niamh McTague, Advanced Community Dietitian as their winner.


Niamh was described as 'considerate, professional, empathetic, skilled and someone who had gone above and beyond her role. She had given the family she cared for hope and positivity and they would have been lost without her.'


It was great to share the evening with the Mayor and Mayoress of Wirral and the High Sheriff of Merseyside; and support from sponsors, Wirral Chamber of Commerce, Hill Dickinson, LT Print and Lorne Stewart made the night possible.


Take a look the table of winners and see their photographs below:
