Hospital staff across Brent and Harrow honoured at awards

The tireless work of hospital staff was recognised at London North-West University Healthcare NHS Trust’s annual Staff Excellence Awards.

London North West University Healthcare NHS Trust (LNWH) provides hospital and community services to the people of Harrow, Brent and Ealing.

Established on 1 October 2014, our team of 9,000 clinical and support staff serve a diverse population of approximately one million people.

As well as delivering community services across the three London boroughs, they provide acute hospital services at: Northwick Park Hospital, St Mark’s Hospital, Ealing Hospital and Central Middlesex Hospital.

There were 14 categories at the awards including Team of the Year, Volunteer of the Year, Unsung Hero, and Lifetime Achievement Award.

Pippa Nightingale, Chief Executive of LNWH, said: “It has been a tough couple of years and everyone should be proud of what they have achieved in often difficult circumstances.

“I see a lot of good work and believe we can now move onto bigger and better things in the future including improving our CQC rating. I am relatively new here and believe we can really step things up with this sort of enthusiasm and willingness to improve.”

One of the most moving awards was for training nursing associate Abbey Jury who saved a man from jumping off a bridge on her way home from work last Christmas Eve.

Abbey was given a Special Recognition Award after talking the man down, wrapping him in a blanket and waiting until an ambulance arrived. The man later rung saying without Abbey’s help he wouldn’t be here today.

Elsewhere, Clinical Sister Chandra Puran picked up a Lifetime Achievement Award for an extraordinary 52 years service, while Jonson Ward won Team of the Year for being the cornerstone of ward based Covid-19 care.
