On 9th December 2016 The Walton Centre NHS Foundation Trust held its annual staff awards at Aintree Racecourse in Liverpool to recognise the dedication and invaluable contribution of staff and volunteers to patient care.
This year’s Winter Wonderland Staff Awards was attended by over 250 guests and received 235 nominations submitted by patients, carers and employees across nine categories, including Patient Experience and Improving Quality. Ten awards were presented in total, one of which – the Good Catch Award – was proudly sponsored and presented by Silverlink to recognise staff members who identify risk to personal safety.
“It was fantastic to have the support of Silverlink – one of our key suppliers – at the event. We really value the partnership we have with our suppliers and were delighted to be able to share our achievements and successes with Silverlink at our awards evening,” said Chief Executive of The Walton Centre, Chris Harrop.
Managing Director at Silverlink, Tim Quainton was at the ceremony to present the Good Catch Award to Joanne Sloane who won the award for the exemplary care of two patients who were in difficulty, while also guiding and teaching a new staff member through both patient episodes.
“On behalf of Silverlink I’d like to once again congratulate Joanne on her achievement. Patient safety is at the core of what we do and we’re delighted to support these awards and take the opportunity to acknowledge and thank the people who share our commitment to patient care and the systems that enable that” said Tim.
