A huge well done to our Resuscitation (Resus) team, recently crowned January’s BSHMFT Team of the Month. The team has an important role to play within the Trust providing resuscitation, equipment, medical emergency and first aid training to our clinical teams. They have received really positive feedback for the inclusive training sessions they provide.

The Resus team has worked hard to improve their service and every team member makes a very valuable contribution. They support colleagues outside of their team and work together to get tasks completed. They are there for one another in challenging times and the trust and respect they have for one another makes even the most difficult days go smoothly.

The commitment they have to training and supporting their colleagues so that they are able to give urgent medical help and the support they give to one another is another reason why the Resus team is the well-deserved winner of January’s Team of the Month.

Congratulations also to our runners up for January’s award, our Perinatal Administration team and the Assertive Outreach Team East. The Perinatal Admin team was nominated by their new apprentice for making her feel so welcome, supported and included. The Assertive Outreach Team East received their nomination for continuing to give the best quality care and support to service users with severe mental illness, despite the challenges they face. 

Our Executive Director for Strategy, People and Partnerships, Patrick Nyarumbu visited the team recently to present them with their award and to thank them for all of their hard work.

Whatever the role each team plays, we want to recognise those who bring alive our values of Compassionate, Inclusive and Committed every day while they’re at work. If you know a hardworking, dedicated team that is having a positive impact on service users, carers and colleagues please nominate them for Team of Month by completing the short nomination form explaining why your chosen team would be worthy winners of the award.
