Hospital staff commended for patient care

11 December 2014

Staff from West Middlesex University Hospital have been recognised for their outstanding contributions to patient care at their annual staff excellence and achievement awards ceremony.

Staff from West Middlesex University Hospital have been recognised for their outstanding contributions to patient care at their annual staff excellence and achievement awards ceremony.

There were eight awards up for grabs with nominations for each category made by patients, staff and volunteers. The winners were chosen by a multi-disciplinary panel which included Chief Executive Jacqueline Docherty, DBE.

All the nominees were invited to the ceremony which also included special guests Mary Macleod MP, Seema Malhotra MP, Cllr Corinna Smart, Mayor of Hounslow and Cllr Peter Buckwell, Deputy Mayor of Richmond.

Recipients received a glass plaque, certificate, pin badge and £100, presented to them by the Trust’s Chief Executive, Chairman and one of the VIP guests. Where the field was too strong to name just a winner, there were two highly commended certificates presented when a runner-up also deserved a special mention.

The awards were:

  • Volunteer of the Year: Percy Writer
  • Care / Maternity Assistant of the Year: Clever Muruko
  • Support Services Person of the Year: Teresa Usher
  • Allied Health Professional of the Year: Elena Noel
  • Nurse of the Year: Fomba Kallon
  • Doctor of the Year: Niall Daly
  • Highly Commended: Krishna Sundaram
  • Midwife of the Year: Teresa Driver
  • Team of the Year: Occupational Health and Wellbeing
  • Highly commended: Breast Care Team

Chief Executive Jacqueline Docherty said: “This is the third year we have held these awards and I am encouraged by how the number of nominations grows each year. Some staff and teams received multiple nominations which goes to show how well regarded they are by their patients and peers. These awards give us an opportunity to publicly recognise and celebrate the outstanding contribution of so many of our staff.”
