the UK is divided into five regions; Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and two

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.
