Published 21/11/2014

A team from Derby Hospitals has enjoyed triple success at a prestigious awards ceremony.

 All three shortlisted staff from the city’s hospitals were declared winners in their respective categories at the East Midlands Leadership Academy NHS Recognition Awards last night, winning Patient Champion, Development Champion and Mentor/Coach of the Year.

Derby Hospitals Chief Executive Sue James says it’s a tremendous achievement “I want to congratulate all three of our winners on behalf of all our staff.  We have worked hard to develop our leadership capability over the past few years, and these results show how well our staff are rising to the challenges faced in today's health service.  They represent all that is best in 21st century healthcare and we are very proud of their success”. 

A&E consultant Dr Dan Boden won Development Champion of the Year for his work helping to redesign the workforce in A&E, inspiring and motivating his colleagues.

The Trust’s Associate Director of Patient Experience Paul Brooks was named Patient Champion of the Year for his work on a campaign called ‘Making Your Moment Matter’ which outlines how staff will give every patient the best possible care.

Adrian Piggott, Leadership Development Advisor, was named Mentor/Coach of the Year for his work in learning and development. The awards recognise emerging leaders in the region.

Now the three Derby winners will go forward to the national finals which take place in London next March.
