Our Trust’s Delivering Excellence Award winners for 2013 have been announced!
Colleagues shortlisted for an award were invited to attend the Delivering Excellence Awards Ceremony at Derbyshire County Cricket Ground, Derby on 26 September 2013. The event was attended by around 200 staff and awards were presented by Steve Trenchard, Chief Executive and Olympic legend Roger Black MBE.
This ceremony is one of the main highlights of the year for our Trust and an opportunity to recognise and value our staff. Previously, this has been combined with the Annual Members’ Meeting, but this year it was held as a separate event.
Steve Trenchard said "I was delighted to be involved in judging this year’s nominations for the individual awards and as a member of the panel on a number of Quality Visits. The individual categories attracted the best response we have ever had, with nearly 100 nominations being forwarded by staff in recognition of the excellent work done by colleagues; showing how much our staff value each other’s commitments.
"This year we also introduced the ‘Unsung Hero’ category, for which nominations were invited from patients and carers. All the nominees were worthy of recognition and it was no easy task for the judges to single out the winning entries and finalists."
A huge congratulations to all of our winners this year!
