On Thursday 25 January SWLSTG staff and leaders came together for the annual Quality Awards, an event which celebrates our staff and the fantastic work they do on a daily basis.
There were 12 awards handed out at the event, including: Mental Health Advocate Award, Lifetime Achievement Award, Chair’s Award and Chief Executive Leadership Award.
Devon Marston and Paul Kenny (pictured) won the Mental Health Advocate Award, an award presented to volunteers who have been true advocates for mental health in the community. Devon was a founding member of Sound Minds, a multi award winning charity which helps improve the lives of people recovering from mental health issues in South West London. Paul has helped run the Family and Friends Support Group for Wandsworth Early Intervention Team for over 9 years and also is an important member of FITT – the Trustwide Family Intervention Training Team.
Deaf Advisor Hebert Klein was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award for his tireless work at the Trust for the past 30 years and his continued promotion of deaf services across the service.
The Acute Care Coordination Centre (ACCC) was awarded the Chairs’ Award as a ground-breaking innovation that has transformed the way the Trust manages bed pressures, out of hours contact, emergencies and on call.
Team Manager Chloe Perkins was awarded the Chief Executives’ Leadership Award for her outstanding leadership at the award-winning Lotus Assessment Suite. This service was also the winner of the prestigious 2017 Nursing Times award for pioneers in mental health.
David Bradley, Chief Executive at SWLSTG, said, “The event was a powerful reminder of the importance of staff on the frontline, who work tirelessly to ensure vulnerable patients are cared for. My congratulations to all the winners and those nominated for their hard work and dedication to patient care.”
