The ‘Bank Worker of the Month’ award 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, Specialist Nurse and Registered Nurse. Every month each of the winners receives an iPad Mini as a thank you for all their hard work. In order to win this award the workers must fulfil the following criteria:
• Achieve ‘5 – Excellent’ on all five of the sections of the ‘Performance Evaluation System’, which is completed by the Ward Manager at the end of each shift.
• Cancelled no shifts for that month.
• Filled the highest number of shifts in the month for which they are being considered for.
We are pleased to announce that November’s winners were:
