Dorset HealthCare recognised outstanding staff and volunteer achievements at its annual ‘Better Every Day’ awards event, held this year at AFC Bournemouth’s Vitality Stadium.
Fellow staff, plus patients and carers, nominated 150 people or teams from local community hospitals, mental health services, community-based workers and support staff who have gone the extra mile to provide excellent services over the past 12 months.
These were whittled down to a final shortlist across eight categories, and the winners were:
Two special awards recognising achievements in service improvement and integration were also awarded to Hannah White, Data and Performance Analyst at Sentinel House, Poole, and staff at Poole Locality Hub, based at Alderney Hospital.
Dorset HealthCare Chair Andy Willis said it was “humbling” to hear what the Trust’s staff and volunteers do on a daily basis to support the care of people across the county.
He added: “We’ve seen lots of innovation, improvement and good leadership in these nominations. It is fantastic to see our staff embracing change, and striving to constantly develop and improve services for local people.”
