team of the year 2015

Colleagues from Ward A6 and PIU, collecting the Team of the Year Award at our PROUD Awards 2015.

The Ward A6 and Planned Investigation Unit (PIU) team were the winners of our ‘Team of the Year’ Award at the Trust’s 2015 PROUD Awards.

The Proud Awards recognise how teams and individuals show commitment to the Trust’s Core Values and Strategic Objectives, and the difference this makes to patients, families, visitors and colleagues. Nominations for the Team of the Year award were received from colleagues at the Trust and it is awarded to a team at the Trust who provide an exceptional service through working together, excellent behaviours, communication and/or a collaborative approach.

Last year the Ward A6 / PIU team were presented with the challenge of rapidly integrating both A7 Day Case Services and Planned Investigation Unit (PIU) services. The team embraced this challenge and looked at ways that they could not just pick up a service, but how best they could merge the services together and make the best clinical environment for patients, visitors and colleagues alike.

The team have actively looked at ways to work differently, to be more effective and improve the way services are delivered. One of the most significant improvements is the environment the team have created, which means patients are now able to have someone stay with them during their treatment; a more holistic way to support and care for patients.

Andrew Lyons, Charge Nurse for Ward A7, nominated Ward A6 / PIU for this award. To the team, he said: “Congratulations April, Kate and the team! Last year, an opportunity arose to do something differently and you certainly have done that on Ward A6 and PIU. You grasped the opportunity and ran with it!”

“I believe that as a team together, you have made a dramatic difference to the experience of our day case patients and I’m sure there will be more good things to come in the future. Well done!”

Kate Lambert, Senior Sister for Chemotherapy and April Brockbank, Deputy Sister for Ward A6/PIU said: “We were thrilled to receive this award. The team strive to provide a friendly and welcoming environment for the patients who we care for and we are so proud to be recognised for doing what we love.

“Often patients are under our care for a number of weeks or months and it is a privilege to get to know them and their families and provide the best environment we can.” #TRFTProud

Congratulations also to the joint runners-up of the Team of the Year Award, the A7 Nursing Team and the In-patient Orthopaedics Therapy Team.
