Quality and Excellence Awards winners 2018

Published: 16/11/2018

Our Quality and Excellence Awards finalists were congratulated for their outstanding contribution to the Trust’s service users, carers and their colleagues at an award ceremony in Birmingham on Wednesday 14 November.

We received an overwhelming response from service users, carers and staff to nominate individuals and teams.

Ann Brady, a Healthcare Assistant  at our Raeside site, was the winner of the Service User and Carer Choice Awards. One of the Trust’s service users said of Ann: “She has shown professional care and compassion, going above and beyond when I needed her most. Spending time with me when I was most upset, finding time to listen and offering advice and support which made me feel better."
