One Team One Goal award winners revealed
We’ve revealed the winners for the Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust One Team One Goal (OTOG) 2021 Awards at a special ceremony held at Wycombe Hospital – highlighting the great work of the Trust’s healthcare professionals, support teams and volunteers over the last year.
Bridget O’Kelly, Chief People Officer for the Trust, said: “We were very proud to host our 17th staff awards, although as ever our judges had a very hard time choosing the final winners from over 200 nominations. Some of the winners told me that they were ‘just doing their job’ – but One Team One Goal Awards recognise the immense pride they take in their roles and their efforts above and beyond what’s expected. It’s why BHT is such a great place to work.”
The Lifetime Contribution Award was won by Community Midwife Tracey Martin who received 60 nominations from previous patients, colleagues and students, citing her as being “widely regarded as a living legend” for her support of around 2000 women and families. One colleague spoke about “her support during times of loss, advocacy for women when they are scared, and personalised care every single time”.
Volunteer of the Year Award went to Graham Livesey, Volunteer Gardener at the National Spinal Injury Centre at Stoke Mandeville Hospital, who transformed a neglected courtyard overlooked by spinal patients and staff into a courtyard to sit in and relax.
A final surprise Special Award went to Scannappeal for raising £16 million to fund life-saving medical equipment for the Trust over 35 years.
The awards categories this year supported the Trust’s corporate strategy: ‘Great place to work’, ‘Outstanding care’ and ‘Healthy communities’.
