This award is for a non-clinical team that has shown commitment to improving the work environment for their staff and/or the quality of care for our service users.

Medical Workforce - Gold winner

The Medical Workforce team has supported the Trust with recruitment and retention of the medical workforce. The expansion of their team has resulted in the implementation of innovative methods to bolster recruitment of the medical workforce. This includes creating recruitment packs, promoting wellbeing offers, creative adverts in national publications, expansion of international recruitment, developing new roles and much more. Their hard work has certainly paid off with the recruitment of 11 new consultants and 21 speciality doctors. This is only the beginning for the team, with many exciting projects underway to recruit more professionals, working closely with the medical directorate, postgraduate and undergraduate medical education departments and HR.
