We’d like to take the time to thank everyone who took part in the staff awards, from the judges and presenters to all nominees and nominators. We received a record number of nominations this year, hitting a total of 141. It was a great achievement for the Trust to see so many members of staff getting involved in the process and recognising their fellow colleagues and teams for their hard work and dedication.

The prize-giving ceremony, which took place 27th November at The Village Hotel Walsall, received positive feedback from attendees and gave us new ideas for next year’s awards. We will soon begin the planning process for the Recognising Success Awards 2016. If you have any ideas please let the Communications team know at communication@dwmh.nhs.uk.
