It was a fantastic night full of fun and enjoyed by everyone who attended. The event really highlights the dedication from organisations across the country to providing high quality care for service users, their families and carers. It's also a great way to remember and celebrate the achievements of our own staff and highlight the fantastic work that is taking place right here in Lancashire. As always, the standard of the nominations was fabulous and everyone who was nominated should be extremely proud. Congratulations to all those who received an award this year, you truly are examples of people who go above and beyond your role in mental health!"
