Staff were invited to attend a special event to recognise those who have gone above and beyond for their patients, demonstrating the fantastic dedication and commitment of those working to support people with serious mental illness across Bath and North East Somerset, Swindon, Wiltshire, Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire.

Throughout the evening 14 awards were handed out in categories including compassionate care, team of the year, making a difference and rising star.

Well done to all those who were nominated and, of course, all our winners!"
