The University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust ‘Caring at its Best Awards’ took place on the evening of 7th September 2017 at The Athena, attended by almost 500 staff, volunteers and supporters including Althea’s Senior Commercial Manager & Associate Director – Managed Services, David Brand and Leicester General Manager, Robert Mason.
The awards recognise and reward Trust staff who are inspirational and committed to colleagues and their patients. The event included awards for: ‘We treat people how we would like to be treated’, ‘We do what we say we are going to do’, ‘We focus on what matters most’ and ‘Caring at its best’ which was a publicly nominated category. The ceremony saw an overall winner selected by their external judges from the finalists of the quarterly heats from throughout the year.
The Acute Stroke Multidisciplinary Team based in Emergency & Specialist Medicine (ESM) at Leicester Royal Infirmary, were selected as winners of ‘We are one team and we are best when we work together’ category, proudly sponsored and presented by Althea. The stroke team work together with the sole aim of providing high quality stroke specialist care to all stroke patients. They strive to meet national and local targets to give patients the best start in their stroke rehabilitation.
A huge well done to all of the winners.
