The work of healthcare staff and support workers from London North West University Healthcare NHS Trust was celebrated at the annual Staff Excellence Awards in Wembley Stadium.
More than 500 people attended the event to see the winners of thirteen categories announced including one very special nominee.
It also offered the opportunity to look back over the previous year and celebrate some of the trust’s achievements. This included winning several national awards, becoming a European leader in robotic knee surgery, and the best performing A&E in London.
Chief Executive Dame Jacqueline Docherty said: “We don’t celebrate our successes enough and this was a great opportunity to take stock and realise how much we have achieved in the past year.
“Staff are the lifeblood of any successful organisation and we have an abundance of people here who regularly go above and beyond what is expected of them.
“We tend to associate healthcare with clinical staff but there is a large army of people behind the scenes making sure things run smoothly, such as our volunteers, porters, domestics, waste mangement and catering.
The fifteen winners were:
