Oh what a night! Here are your NHFT Quality Awards winners…

Quality awards winners 2021

Last night, Thursday 16 December, we hosted our seventh Quality Awards ceremony, celebrating your achievements and hard work from throughout the year.

The Quality Awards ceremony took place virtually again this year, with colleagues across the Trust joining the glitzy evening to celebrate our winners, shortlist and highly commended stars. And what a celebration it was! The event was bigger and better than ever before as colleagues and their families from across the Trust were able to tune in and take part from across the county and beyond.

NHFT’s Chief Executive, Angela Hillery, and Chair, Crishni Waring, opened and closed the evening. Chief Executive, Angela Hillery, said: “Every single member of teamNHFT goes out of their way to make a difference for our communities. As a Trust, we are committed to providing outstanding care, and it is so special to recognise the real stars of our local NHS at our annual staff awards.

“I am incredibly proud of all of our colleagues who were nominated, shortlisted and won an award. The stories which were shared are immensely moving and demonstrate the vital work of NHFT. I would like to thank the Northamptonshire Health Charity for sponsoring the awards ceremony, and all of the staff involved in delivering another brilliant virtual event.”

NHFT was delighted to welcome back, non-other than, television’s Nick Hewer (Countdown, The Apprentice) who hosted the annual event for a second year running. Nick was in good company as he was joined by a host of celebrities who announced our category winners, including William Roache (Coronation Street), Duncan James (Musician / Blue), Ben Fogle (TV Presenter) and Rory Bremner (Comedian/Impressionist) to name a few.

The annual celebration, which is celebrating its seventh year, recognises our community heroes. Those who go above and beyond for their patients and continue to make a difference everyday. The full list of shortlisted stars and well-deserved winners can be viewed below.

Dr Sunil Lad, Consultant Psychologist, provides mental health support to residents in secured services across Northamptonshire and beyond and received the accolade for NHFT Wellbeing Ambassador, recognising him as a champion for improving wellbeing for both staff and residents in prisons.

The Patient Choice award is decided by patients and service users who receive care from NHFT services. Kerry Mabbott, Specialist Occupational Therapist in the ADHD Aspergers Team, was this year’s winner, recognising her commitment to providing outstanding and compassionate care to her patients. Kelly’s nomination demonstrated her approach to delivering holistic care, providing her patients with the skills and encouragement they need to make improvements in all aspects of their lives.

The Trust would like to extend its thanks to the Northamptonshire Health Charity, who provided support and funding to allow this virtual event to go ahead.  As well as VerseOne, Hempsons Legal and Pertemps Medical who sponsored our awards.
