We were delighted to host our first People at our Heart Awards ceremony since before the pandemic on Friday 2 September as part of Thank you Month.
Our People at our Heart Awards are an opportunity to shine a light on an individual, team or volunteer that does an incredible job and goes above and beyond the call of duty. All permanent Trust employees and volunteers are eligible to be nominated – so whether you’re a patient, a colleague, a carer, a volunteer, or one of our partners, you have the chance to celebrate and reward those who go that extra mile in delivering care or treatment.
The People at our Heart Awards judging panel is made up of clinical and non-clinical staff, patient and governor representatives. At the end of each quarter, the panel come together to review each of the nominations received and as a group they select two individual winners, one volunteer and one winning team. This year’s very special event celebrated everyone who was shortlisted throughout 2021 and 2022.
Congratulations to all of our winners and well done to everyone who was shortlisted. The full list of winners is below:
- Employee of the Year 2021: Brian Quinn, Maintenance Craftsman
- Team of the Year 2021: NECTAR
- Employee of the Year 2022: Kirstyn Borrowdale, Occupational Therapy
- Team of the Year 2022: Newcastle Central District Nursing Team
- Volunteer Team of the Year 2022: Patient Discharge Follow up Service – Elmira Alimohammadzadeh & Julie Crumbley.
