proud winners 2017

Friday 1 December marked the annual Proud Awards where more than 200 health care professionals and NHS colleagues came together to celebrate their fantastic achievements.

The event, held at the New York Stadium, was the culmination of the Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust’s Proud Week of celebrations - one of the highlights of the Trust’s year. The week is dedicated to recognising committed and caring colleagues who ensure we continue to make a positive difference to our patients’ lives every day.

Louise Barnett, Chief Executive, said: “It was great to see so many colleagues come together to recognise the amazing work across the Trust. It was a privilege to be a part of the day and share this special day with our colleagues.

“Congratulations to all of our winners and runners up, and to everybody who was shortlisted and nominated for one of our awards.”

The winner of our Public Recognition Award, nominated by members of the public, patients and visitors and supported by the Rotherham Advertiser, was Mr Richard Crosher and the Oral Maxillofacial Team. Attendees at the ceremony heard how Mr Crosher and his team helped patient Stephen Peters overcome throat cancer twice.

In their nomination Stephen’s wife, Dawn, said: “He has saved my husband’s life twice now following throat cancer. The second time he got it we were told by another consultant that they could not do any more for him but sure enough Mr Crosher came back to work and was not ready to give up on Stephen and was happy to operate again.

“He worked with the doctors at Weston Park to plan more radiotherapy. Stephen has been in remission now for six years. I cannot thank Mr Crosher and his team of staff enough for what they have done for us. They have worked so hard with Stephen over the years enabling him to see his children grow into adults and for me to still have my soul mate here with me. The biggest thank you ever goes to these people.“
