Well-earned pats on the back for dedicated Maudsley hospital staff

Staff across South London and Maudsley NHS Trust were honoured during a special annual awards ceremony. 

Sponsored by the Maudsley Charity, the event gave the senior leadership team the opportunity to thank staff across the trust for their outstanding contributions. 

This year, there were an unprecedented number of nominations – more than 550 – from which judges chose individuals and teams for 13 awards. 

Hosted by the lead occupational development consultant for South London and Maudsley Partners, Patience McLean, at County Hall, on the South Bank, the categories included kindness, leadership, efforts to promote equality, diversity and inclusion, and clinical care. 

David Bradley, chief executive of South London and Maudsley said: “It’s an enormous achievement to reach this stage of the process. All our finalists – like all our staff – embody the values and behaviours we want to see embedded throughout this Trust. 

“We’ve heard stories of kindness, respect and of people working tirelessly together to achieve great things for our service users. I am immensely proud to be part of an organisation full of such wonderful people.” 

Norman Lamb, chairman of the Trust said: “We are incredibly proud of all of you here tonight – and your colleagues. You have worked so hard and shown such determination and courage in very tough times. 

“There is no doubt in my mind, whether you work on the frontline or in a role that supports our frontline services, that you have made a huge difference to the lives of so many people in the communities we serve.” 

Mariama Jalloh, Chaffinch ward manager at the Bethlem Royal Hospital, who accepted the Transforming Lives Award for the team said: “This is for the entire team, including support staff. This team is like a family to the patients. We give them hope and we are proud of that.” 

Other individual award winners are: Stephen Antao (Kindness and Caring); Olisa Skyers (Leading and Inspiring); Chris Rossmanith-Shoulder (Unsung Hero); Patrice Tharpe (Individual of the Year);  Simone Myers (Equality, Diversity and Inclusion);  Noeleen Morritt (Chief Executive and Chair’s Award).
