Trust responsible for Northwick Park Hospital wins national award

London North West University Healthcare NHS Trust, responsible for Northwick Park Hospital, has won the Trust of the Year Award at the annual GG2 Leadership and Diversity Awards for its work championing diversity and encouraging an inclusive working environment.

The GG2 Leadership & Diversity Awards, in their 25th year, recognise ethnic minority talent in Britain, alongside the GG2 Power List highlighting influential South Asians. Previous guests include Prime Ministers and CEOs, with partners like pladis and The Daily Mail.

Judges praised the trust’s positive approach to tackling racism with the publication of its anti-racism action plan, encouraging greater diversity on its board as well as being the first to trust to undertake an external review of its race workforce standards.

PM Rishi Sunak was the keynote speaker at the ceremony in London which recognises and celebrates diversity across organisations and the ‘incredible contribution of South Asian people to our economy and our society.”

CEO Pippa Nightingale said: “One of the things that attracted me to come and work here was the diversity of our communities and workforce. It was a lovely surprise to pick up the award but much work remains to be done so onwards and upwards.”
