Trust team is top in the region

The Clinical Radiology Team at The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust have won the regional ‘Team of the Year’ award from The Society of Radiographers, and are now through to the UK finals.

The team were nominated by radiographer Brydie Shires, who had recently joined the team from another Trust.

For the purpose of the award, the UK is divided into five regions; Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and two in England. By securing the regional award, the Rotherham team are now in the final shortlist for the national award against the four other regional winners. The award will be presented at a ceremony in London on Thursday 8 November, where the national winner will also be announced.

Andy Brammer, General Manager for Clinical Support Services, said: “It’s great that the Radiography team have been shortlisted for the national team of the year award from the Society of Radiographers. It is particularly nice that the nomination came from a relatively new member of staff who joined us from another Trust; who on seeing all the great progress that had been made within the service and the spirit of teamwork inherent in the culture in the department here at The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust, decided to nominate the team. It’s a really great thing for her to have done this for the team, and recognise everyone’s hard work, raising the profile of the service and the Trust. Well done all.”

Louise Barnett, Chief Executive, added: “This is a fantastic achievement for the Radiology Team and it is great that a new colleague has recognised the hard work and dedication of the team she has joined. As a Trust, we are performing really well in diagnostics which is a credit to everyone involved. We are very proud of this team who make a real difference for patients. I wish them every success in the national finals.”

The Radiography Team of the Year is an annual award and is an opportunity to recognise the hard work and dedication of radiography teams across the UK.
