Around 130 staff and guests of Ashford and St Peter’s Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust came together to celebrate their 2015 Staff Achievement Awards on Thursday 16th April at Oatlands Park Hotel in Weybridge.
Hosted by Trust Chairman Aileen McLeish, and Trust Chief Executive, Suzanne Rankin, the event began with a champagne afternoon tea before the winners of 10 awards were announced. Aileen opened the event by saying to those staff and guests gathered: “This is an afternoon when we honour those who are outstanding in terms of doing something WOW! for our patients. It is an opportunity to think, too, about what all of our colleagues do for the NHS and our community.”
Chief Executive, Suzanne Rankin paid tribute to staff: “It’s a real honour for me to join Aileen and others in making these awards to our staff who do a fantastic job for patients, not just in specific circumstances, but every single day. Some of the nominations we have heard today are truly humbling and I am so proud to lead such a fantastic team. These awards – which are nominations that come from patients as well as staff – are further testimony to the care and dedication of our team and should offer further reassurance to local people of the high standards of care and treatment in our hospitals.”
