Hospital staff celebrate festive season

16 December 2011

The X-Ray Department has won Chelsea and Westminster Hospital’s Best Decorated Ward competition, which is held every year to help bring some Christmas cheer to patients who unfortunately have to spend the festive season in hospital.

The X-Ray Department has won Chelsea and Westminster Hospital's Best Decorated Ward competition, which is held every year to help bring some Christmas cheer to patients who unfortunately have to spend the festive season in hospital.

Second place went to David Erskine Ward and the Sexual Health Call Centre was awarded third place.

Hospital staff adorn their wards and departments with colourful decorations and their efforts are judged. The Friends of Chelsea and Westminster Hospital generously support the competition by sponsoring cash prizes of £100, £75 and £50.

This year the competition was judged by Ada Dawnay (Friends Chairman), Dr David Hawkins (Staffside Representative), Professor Sir Christopher Edwards (Trust Chairman) and Heather Lawrence (Chief Executive).

The Friends of Chelsea and Westminster also sponsored the annual Christmas Cheer Awards which recognise staff for their contribution to the life of the hospital and patient care. A record 555 nominations were received this year—35 individual staff and two teams received an award (pictured above).
