We are delighted to announce the second group of winners of our recognition scheme, the ‘Bank Worker of the Month’ award. The scheme recognises those workers who provide excellent quality of care to patients, achieve high standards across our core values and meet the 6Cs – care, compassion, competence, communication, courage and commitment. There is an award for three categories; Care Support Worker, Registered Nurse and Specialist Nurse. In order to win an award, our workers must fulfil the following criteria:
• Achieve ‘5 – Excellent’ on all five of the five sections of the ‘Performance Evaluation System’, which is evaluated by the ward manager at the end of each of your shifts.
• Cancelled no shifts for the month that they are being considered for.
• Filled the highest shifts in the month for which they are being considered for.
The three deserving winners from February are:
Jeanette Prime, Care Support Worker at York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust:
“I was very proud to receive my award. I am a Care Support Worker at York Hospital and enjoy my job very much. It is very rewarding to know that I have been able to make a difference to the patients I treat and that this has been acknowledged by the people I work with.”
Bruce Bailey, Mental Health Practitioner at Southern Health NHS Foundation Trust:
“It was a great surprise to hear I had won this award and judged to be Bank Worker of the Month. It was nice to know that the decision had been reached because of the validation submitted by my line managers at Southern Health. Everyone is doing great work here and the practitioners on the ground are constantly thinking of innovative ways to help the patients.”
“I was surprised to receive this award but very pleased to have my commitment to Stepping Hills Accident and Emergency department recognised by my work colleagues. I have worked in A&E for 20 years and I have eight children to look after at home. Being a flexible worker enables me to enjoy a balance between home life and work life and I love being a part of NHS Professionals.”
It is our pleasure to congratulate this month’s winners of the award and we would also like to encourage all of our staff to continue the great work they do every day.
