Staff from Peterborough, Stamford and Hinchingbrooke hospitals have been honoured for their dedication, commitment and going the extra mile through a series of coveted awards.
Winners from across North West Anglia NHS Foundation Trust were celebrated at the Outstanding Achievement Awards, the first time the annual event has been held in person since 2019.
Around 150 members of staff and volunteers were invited to the glittering evening at the Holiday Inn, Peterborough, hosted by BBC Radio Cambridgeshire DriveTime presenter Chris Mann.
Nominees and winners on the night all received personal thanks from Trust board executives, who shared their individual stories with the audience.
In addition, the Trust’s charity patron – Strictly Come Dancing judge Craig Revel Horwood – sent a pre-recorded video message of congratulations.
Some 11 awards were presented to outstanding recipients in a number of categories; including team of the year, unsung heroes, behind the scenes superstars – with all winners praised for going over and above the call of duty.
Many of the awards reflected the challenges individuals and teams rose to and overcame during the pandemic, and a series of Health Hero awards were voted for by patients and the public.
Trust Chief Executive Officer Caroline Walker said: “Celebrating staff and all the amazing things they do in their roles is one of the best parts of my job. I feel incredibly proud to work with every single member of staff and these awards have been a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the many individual and team achievements.
“My huge congratulations to each and every worthy winner.”
