The Trust will also be presenting Long Service Awards to staff who have completed 30 years' NHS service.

Dominic Hardisty, AWP's Chief Executive, said: "As the Trust's new Chief Executive, this will be my first Staff Awards and I am really excited to be involved. In my short time with the Trust I have already met with some incredible members of staff who are extremely committed to supporting our service users, families and carers, and go out of their way to provide compassionate and dedicated care.

"The staff awards is the perfect way to acknowledge and recognise the vital role our staff play in assisting our service users on their journey towards recovery and I would encourage everyone who has had contact with our staff to nominate."
