Lincolnshire health trust to reward mental health workers

Have your say

A HEALTH trust is asking users to nominate a mental health worker or team for an award.

The Lincolnshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, which provides specialist care for people with learning disabilities, mental health and drug or alcohol problems, is holding its Going for Gold staff excellence awards.

The trust wants service users and carers to put forward the names of staff or volunteers who have gone the extra mile to provide care.

Trust Chairman, Eileen Ziemer, said: “It’s such a pleasure to be able to applaud those special employees who go above and beyond the call of duty in helping our service users and those who dedicate their working lives to local mental health care and wellbeing.”

The deadline for making a nomination is Friday, September 21. The winners will be announced in November.
