Jennifer Fairbanks, then Apprentice at The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust, collecting her Excellence in Healthcare Award at the PROUD Awards 2015.

The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust received some fantastic nominations in the ‘Excellence in Healthcare’ category for our PROUD Awards 2015. It was just not possible to select only one winner, so we had two!

Our Vision at the Trust is to ‘ensure patients are at the heart of what we do, providing excellent clinical outcomes and a safe and first class experience” and our ‘Patients - Excellence in Healthcare’ Strategic Objective sets out our aims to see that every patient and their family is special. This objective seeks to ensure we meet essential standards of care, are compassionate and embrace the future.

Jennifer Fairbanks, now Clinical Support Worker in Adult Speech and Language Therapy at the Trust, was one of our two winners of the 2015 Excellence in healthcare PROUD Award. In her role as Clinical Support Worker, Jennifer works both on the Stroke Unit and in the community to support stroke survivors who may struggle with communication.

Jennifer was nominated for this award by Gemma Hayden, Speech and Language Therapist.

Within her nomination, Gemma said: “With so many ideas and ambition, Jennifer makes a huge difference to our patients who are on the Stroke Unit. It can be seen instantly that she has the care and compassion that is so essential in this job. She has established it to be standard practice for all stroke survivors with aphasia to have a communication book; a vital source of information for the client, their family and our nursing and therapy colleagues. Having Jennifer working with the stroke team makes a huge difference to patient care and our patients’ lives.”

Gemma commented: “She is one of the most enthusiastic, passionate and wonderful people I have worked with. She will make an amazing health professional whatever she does.”

Following her graduation as an Apprentice Health Care Assistant at the Trust, Jennifer was thrilled to win the Excellence in Healthcare Award. She said: “I felt privileged to be nominated for the award and I still can’t believe I won it! I feel very lucky to be working in a place that is so supportive and encouraging, I’ve done nothing but grow”. #TRFTPROUD

Look out for news about our second winner of the Excellence in Healthcare Award.
