Local NHS Trust Gives Recognition to its Best and Brightest

ON Thursday, 26 October, Cheshire and Wirral Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (CWP) hosted its inaugural CWP Recognition Awards at Ellesmere Port Civic Hall. A fantastic occasion, the event aimed to give well deserved acclaim to members of staff who had gone above and beyond in their provision of care for our service users. It was also a way of the Trust saying thank you to our staff for their incredible hard work over the last year. The awards ceremony also sought to give an extra special thanks to those staff members who had given extraordinary long service, not just to CWP, but to the NHS as a whole.

As well as the awards presented to staff, there was also some fantastic live entertainment on show, as part of a wonderful evening. One performance was by Paul Mcgee (aka the SUMO guy) who provided his unique brand of "Mancunian motivation" whilst invigorating the audience. His 1 hour show was full of laughs and insight. He encouraged the audience to:- "Seize the day" and advised that:- "Seeking support is not a sign of weakness, it is a sign of wisdom."

Those in attendance were also treated to a musical performance by the Cheshire branch of the national Rock Choir, who displayed their unique versions of songs such as:- 'Uptown Girl by Billy Joel' and 'Don't Stop Believin' by Journey.

Awards were presented in a number of new and exciting categories. They were:-

►   Excellence in supporting patient care.
►   Excellence in patient care.
►   Outstanding contribution to our communities.
►   Outstanding contribution to research and development.
►   Outstanding contribution to volunteering and involvement.
►   Outstanding contribution to leadership.

In addition, there were gongs presented to our overall Going the Extra Mile Winners (our Trust's employee of the month award) in both individual and team categories. Certificates were also presented to those members of staff who had given 20, 30 and 40 years of service respectively in our Recognition of Service category.

The Wirral Homeless Team were one of our lucky winners from the night. They picked up the award for "Excellence in Patient Care." Represented by Gaynor Parry and Kerry Greenop, their nomination was glowing in its praise for the pair. Their citation read:- "Gaynor and Kerry work with the most hard to reach, marginalised and disadvantaged people in Wirral. They never give up on people who most of society has given up on. There is no doubt that they keep homeless people alive through their interventions and protect those who are vulnerable."

CWP chief executive, Sheena Cumiskey, was thrilled with proceedings. She said:- "I was delighted to attend our awards night, along with so many people who really do make CWP what it is. I'm incredibly proud to be Chief Executive of an organisation that puts people at the heart of everything we do, providing person-centred care to our service users. These awards were just one way to recognise and celebrate the people who provide and support the provision of that care. I would especially like to extend a huge thank you to everyone who supports CWP, through their work, involvement or volunteering."
