Outstanding achievements of staff recognised at our PRIDE awards
04 March 2015

Burton Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust held its 2015 PRIDE Awards on Friday 27 February to celebrate the outstanding achievements of hard-working individuals and teams at Burton Hospitals.

The annual awards ceremony, now in its 11th year, recognises individuals and teams that have performed over and above expectations and made a real, tangible difference to the lives of patients and to the Trust as a whole.

Chief Executive Helen Ashley said: “Our PRIDE Awards are one of the most important dates in our hospital calendar.  Every year we take time out of our busy schedules to recognise colleagues and teams who have shown a real commitment to our values, all of which has a positive impact on our most important priority: patient care.  I’m proud and honoured to be a part of these awards and to celebrate some of the incredible work taking place in our Trust.”
