Meet CHFT's recent Star Award winners

Our Trust likes to say thank you to colleagues and our monthy Star Award presentations are hugely popular here at CHFT.

Colleagues nominate each other for being brilliant to work alongside, for being inspirational and going tthe extra mile for our patients and their families.

Every month the nominations are sent to a panel made up of senior colleagues representing all areas of the Trust.

The winner's nominator is tipped off to help us spring a surprise and our CEO Owen Williams turns up with a certificate and shopping vouchers for the winner (a bit ilke  "This is Your Life" legend Eamonn Andrews used to do in the hit TV show from the 70s). 

The beauty is anybody can nominate anybody else and we end up with a full range of colleagues in the mix.

Our collage showcases a few winners since our last edition, pictured with Owen and Chief Operating Officer Helen Barker, top left.


They are clockwise, with our CEO Owen Williams, from the left:

* Consultant Microbiologist, Alice Milner with Dr Gavin Boyd

* Healthcare Assistant in Acute Medicine, Michelle Jackson
