The annual Friends Christmas Cheer Awards ceremony, which recognises members of staff and teams who have a happy, positive approach to their work and encompass our values every day, took place on Monday 17 December.

This year we received 324 nominations for teams and individual members of staff. The winners included one overall team winner, two team runners-up and 26 individual members of staff who all received three or more nominations.

The Team award went to the Healthcare Assistants on David Erskine Ward who were nominated by 18 of their colleagues who said “An incredible team of healthcare assistants who work so very hard throughout the year, always with the biggest smiles on their faces. Agy, Jean, Lystra and Samjana are described by our patients as superstars.”

The team runners up were the Acute Assessment Unit and the Security team.

Ward Clerk on Nell Gwynne Ward, Angela Honan, was nominated for a Friends Christmas Cheer Award by 20 of her colleagues.  They described Angela as “unfailingly helpful, approachable and willing to assist with any task, no matter how small or trivial. Angela is always friendly, smiling and unassuming.”
