Loyal health workers in Sheffield have been recognised for their dedication at an awards ceremony.

‘Awards for excellence’ were handed to staff from Sheffield Health and Social Care NHS Foundation Trust, during a prizegiving held by the organisation.

Volunteer Rex Thompson picked up a lifetime achievement award, while Bidisha Mondall, bed manager at Northlands health centre in Southey, was named ‘best non-clinical individual’.

The prize for clinical individual went to two workers – Esther Carr, occupational therapist at the Longley Centre, and Wendy Hastings Quainoo, deputy manager in respite care at the Longley Meadows home.

Joint winners also celebrated success in the clinical team category, which went to staff on G1 ward at Grenoside Grange Hospital, and Sheffield Improving Access to Psychological Therapies’ exercise strategy group.

Meanwhile, the award for best non-clinical team was presented to the Wensley Street Players, and Mark Thorpe, from the Longley Centre’s occupational therapy department, was winner in the service user or volunteer category.

All of the prizewinners received certificates in front of hundreds of guests during an event at The Showroom on Paternoster Row, Sheffield.

Kevan Taylor, the trust’s chief executive, said: “We were extremely proud to present these awards. All nominations were well deserved and show what valuable staff we have here at the trust.”
