Recently having the pleasure of attending the ‘Time to Shine’ Awards for the East and North Hertfordshire NHS Trust, we are thrilled to announce that our Security Team successfully won the Mitie Unsung Heroes Award for 2022.
Staff and team members from across the Trust’s multiple sites, including Hertford County Hospital, Lister Hospital in Stevenage, Mount Vernon Cancer Centre in Northwood and the New QEII Hospital in Welwyn Garden City, were invited to nominate teams who constantly work together to maintain and improve the service that they provide, with a panel of judges scoring to determine the 33 finalists.
Announced first on the evening, Chris Boseley, Safety and Security Manager/LSMS, and the Carlisle Support Services Security Team were praised for working tirelessly to keep staff, patients, and visitors safe – all amid heightened emotional interactions due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The Trust’s Chief Executive, Adam Sewell-Jones, who hosted the awards, said:
“These awards were an opportunity to celebrate the achievements of many of our colleagues, as we reflect on some of the most challenging times the NHS has ever faced. It was fantastic to be able to come together and hear so many inspiring stories during the evening – a snapshot of the incredible work our amazing team members do each day.”
Hannah Bridgman, Commercial Director for Carlisle Support Services, expressed her thanks to the entire security team:
“This team are so quietly competent and were all humbled and appreciative of the award. The environments that the team have worked within over the last few years have been extremely challenging, but they have all continued to complete their roles with a positive and proactive nature. Huge congratulations to the team on receiving this well-deserved recognition.”
