Thank You Event 2020: Team of the Year- Highly Commended
Every year we celebrate our amazing staff and their achievements at our pop-up ceremony. This year to keep everyone as safe as possible the event will be held virtually - Board members will pop into video meetings to surprise colleagues and present them with a trophy to celebrate as they are shining examples of our magnificent staff behaviours.
We will be posting all the winners as we reveal them so keep a look out on our website and social media channels.
Team of the Year - Highly Commended
The Neighbourhood Team, including Neighbourhood Nights Service, Leadership Team has been required to respond positively to rapidly changing and evolving circumstances and situations, particularly relating to the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite the ongoing challenges the development of staff remains a high priority and the leadership team has worked creatively to ensure that staff can be released to undertake relevant study which supports LCH’s commitment to recruitment and retention.
Julie Mountain, Clinical Head of Service who nominated the team said:
“The senior leadership team within the ABU is proud to nominate the leadership within the Neighbourhood Teams including Neighbourhood Nights for the Team of the Year Award. The team has responded to the unprecedented challenge that has faced our teams for the past 10 months without respite. The level of commitment they have demonstrated to patients, staff and the organisation has to be commended. Without their continued commitment, dedication, team work and mutual support the high standards of patient care could not have been delivered.”
“The pace of change and the requirements to adapt and respond almost daily at times has needed high levels of robust communication, positivity and resilience. Each and every one of them has risen magnificently to this challenge.” “This team were called upon to make difficult decisions on a daily basis in order to mobilise resources across the city ensuring essential visits were undertaken every day. This remains an ongoing challenge during Wave 2. The continued professionalism and the demonstration of LCH’s vision, values and behaviours is exemplary from this group of leaders.”
Julie also received her 40 years’ service certificate in the same meeting and received fitting tributes from her colleagues who described her as as a “dedicated nurse” and “someone they couldn’t be without.”
Executive Director of Operations, Sam Prince popped into a Team meeting via Microsoft Teams to deliver the good news and present them with the award! Sam said: “The confidence and faith you have shown in your teams really shines through. I am proud of all of you.”
