Proud of our award winning staff
We are celebrating! Staff from
our Trust beat off stiff competition across the region to win two
categories at this year's NHS South West Leadership Recognition
The awards celebrate leaders at all levels and across all NHS
professions, regardless of their position or level of
qualifications. They recognise those who have improved people's
health and the public's experience of health and social care.
Dr Mary Griggs Clinical Psychologist for the Specialised Deaf
Service took home the Leadership for Service Improvement &
Innovation Award as 'an exemplar in leading a service improvement
or innovation, which has seen a positive, sustainable change and
impact on the outcomes for staff, patients, service users,
citizens, their families.'
Wendy Kelvin, Head of Learning and Development won the Leading
& Developing People Award which
recognised 'those who lead and empower people to
stretch themselves; shares their knowledge or opportunities for
learning; helps to develop staff and someone who truly believes in
the potential of everyone.'
AWP's Director of Strategy Rachel Clark said "We were delighted
that Mary and Wendy's excellent leadership skills and achievements
have been recognised. They are committed to making a
difference, go above and beyond what is expected and exemplify
values-based leadership. They are great ambassadors for our
organisation and we congratulate them on this well-deserved
The event was held at the Bristol Pavilion and hosted by
Christina Quinn, Director NHS South West Leadership Academy and Ann
James, Chair NHS South West Leadership Academy.
Congratulations to all the nominees and winners.
