Katie Piper presents prizes to Chelsea and Westminster staff at 2013 Star Awards

22 April 2013

There were tears, laughter and many reasons to celebrate at the 2013 Chelsea and Westminster Star Awards which recognise staff at the Trust. Special guest Katie Piper presented 19 awards to individuals and teams at the ceremony at Chelsea Football Club.

There were nearly 1000 nominations across the 19 categories this year. Fifteen of the award categories were nominated by staff, one category was chosen by patients and there were two special awards selected by the Council of Governors and the Chief Executive.

Katie gave an inspirational speech ahead of the awards which struck a chord with everyone present and described how important every member of staff is and the difference they make to patients.

The most emotional category of the evening was the Chief Executive's Special Award. Chief Executive Tony Bell chose an individual and a team to receive an award this year. The individual winner was Edgar Horne Ward Manager Sian Davies, who nearly missed the ceremony as she had stayed late on her nursing shift to care for a patient who needed extra attention.

The Chief Executive's team award went to the A&E and Patient Flow team who ensure patients are treated quickly and effectively in A&E, are cared for on the right ward at the right time and are discharged efficiently.

The Chief Executive announced on the night that Chelsea and Westminster Hospital was the best performing Trust in the country for meeting the 4 hour A&E waiting time target during 2012/13 so there was extra reason for celebration.

The 2013 Star Award winners were:
