including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement. The Trust received
the medal after having receiving the Gold Award for five consecutive years.

patients and visitors at the Trust is extremely important to us and it is a
fantastic achievement that our teams have been recognised for their hard work
for five consecutive years. Well done and thank you to everyone involved.”

Awards are the most highly-respected in the health and safety arena, with
almost 2,000 entrants every year, and allow organisations to prove excellence
in the workplace, demonstrating a commitment to the wellbeing of not only
employees but all those who interact with it.”
