It was celebrations all round for Heart of England NHS Foundation Trust as organisers announced the winners of the third annual Solihull Together Awards at an inspiring ceremony.
Compered by the Trust’s Interim Chair the Rt. Hon Jacqui Smith, the Awards celebrate outstanding work by individuals and organisations from across the borough that supports vulnerable and frail people in Solihull.
The Trust was delighted to receive a raft of nominations for its staff and teams and it turned out to be a successful 2017 event for the Trust.
Geraldine Russell, specialist in special care dentistry at Solihull Community Services, part of the Trust, was one of our big winners taking away the prize for Health Professional of the Year.
The Trust was also delighted to be victorious in the Dementia Friendly Service category as the Enhanced Recovery at Home scheme run by the Trust’s Delirium and Dementia Outreach Team won the award. Senior dementia nurse Phil Hall was on hand to pick up the trophy.
There was also more award success for the Macmillan Palliative Care Therapy Team who won in the Collaborative Working category.
The Trust was also delighted to see the remarkable 102-year-old co-founder of the Friends of Solihull Hospital (FOSH) Millie Skinner deservedly recognised for her tireless fundraising work for the hospital with the Local Hero award.
