Poole Hospital Award winners celebrated

PHA15 Poole Hospital’s annual awards ceremony took place last month, recognising excellence from staff, volunteers and fundraisers.

Around 110 attendees, including the mayor and mayoress of Poole, heard moving tributes from patients and their families about the care they and their loved ones had received in the past 12 months.

Among those recognised were the children’s diabetes team who were winners in the patient care team category in recognition of their consistent high standards toward patient care. The team was put forward by a colleague, who noted their dedicated, professional and caring approach - “feedback from patient surveys consistently indicates the professionalism and expertise of the team during clinics, and the warm regard in which patients and their families hold the team,” their nomination read.

Joanna Hanna, dietitian, said on behalf of the team: “We were honoured to receive this award - each member of our team strives to provide the best possible support for our families working cohesively as a team to achieve this, and it is great to be recognised.”

Angela Schofield, Poole Hospital chairman, gave her thanks to the staff, supporters, patients, relatives and members of the public who had taken the time to make a nomination, and to local engineering firm Meggitt, which has supported the awards for the past 18 years.

She said: “It’s events like these awards that serve to remind us all why we work, support and volunteer for the great institution that is the NHS.

“Our staff really do a fantastic job - the hospital is nothing without the people who work there, and they make the hospital what it is and are the reason why people trust us to care for them.

“To me, everyone who works at Poole Hospital, our volunteers and our fundraisers, are stars.”
