Trust Celebrates Staff Achievement
South London Healthcare NHS Trust celebrated its first annual staff award ceremony last week. Awards were given to long service staff who have completed 25 and 35 years at one of the SLH sites, as well in the four award categories. The awards were nominated by staff and members of the public.
Chief Executive Chris Streather said; "The staff awards was an opportunity for the Trust to recognise and reward the dedication and commitment of our staff members. This was our first staff awards as a newly merged trust and it was a pleasure to see so many examples of good patient care and innovation within the workplace."
