We are pleased to announce March’s winners of our recognition scheme, the ‘Bank Worker of the Month’ award. The scheme recognises NHS Professionals’ flexible 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 or Healthcare assistant, 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.
Two of the winners from March are:
