Staff shine at awards ceremony

Four Poole Hospital staff were shortlisted and two won their category at the annual Health Education England (HEE) Wessex Shine Awards at the Grand Harbour Hotel, Southampton.

Nicola Allen, a healthcare assistant on Lulworth ward, won the Apprentice of the Year award. Nicola completed her level two and three apprenticeships as well the bridging programme at Poole Hospital and has now started her pre-registration nursing course at Bournemouth University.

She continues to work for us as a member of bank staff and was recognised as treating patients ‘with dignity and respect whilst including their relatives in their care’. Mark Moss, a bowel screening practitioner, was commended in the Apprentice of the Year category.

Sarah Bradley, advanced occupational therapy practitioner in hand therapy, won the Chair’s award for her work improving hand surgery and therapy practice through education and innovation.

Sarah developed a new traction splint which has already saved the Trust over £60,000 when used instead of surgery. Sarah was recognised at the event as having ‘facilitated a working environment that is collaborative and committed to following through new clinical ideas that benefit patients’.

Anna Willis and Ruth Morgan from children’s therapy services were also highly commended in the Chair’s award category for their ‘parenting through the senses’ programme which supports families of children with autism.

In the Education and Training, Innovation and Improvement Champion of the Year category Dr James Bromilow, consultant in intensive care medicine, was highly commended for his work with the Dorset Centre for General Practice and their ‘practical management of emergencies in the community’ project.

Congratulations to all staff that were shortlisted or won an award.
