Health workers have been praised for their outstanding patient care and dedication to their profession.
Peterborough and Stamford Hospitals Trust hosted its outstanding achievement awards night to honour its staff who go above and beyond the call of duty.
More than 140 people attended the ceremony at the Orton Hall Hotel in Peterborough. It followed a month of celebrations to recognise the contributions made by staff and volunteered at Stamford Hospital and Peterborough City Hospital.
Trust chairman Rob Hughes said: “Our staff and volunteers are our greatest asset and we are incredibly proud of what they achieve.”
Eight achievement awards were presented on the night, including two public recognition awards which were voted for by readers of the Mercury and its sister paper the Peterborough Telegraph.
Mercury readers chose Dr Kanchan Rege and the cancer services team as their winner.
Dr Rege received seven separate nominations from people who commented on her professionalism and the care she shows to both patients and their families.
Dr Rege said: “The whole team on the haematology/oncology unit strives to give excellent care to our patients and it is very rewarding to feel that this is appreciated.”
At the ceremony, long service awards were presented to Amanda Dann, Beverley Butt, Carol Clark, Caroline Elmer, David Rowlands, Elaine Cooper, Elaine Page, Gillian Collingwood, Gina Darnell, Jennie Nottingham, Julie Elding, Karen Stone, Katherine Markley, Lisa Brown, Lisa Manton, Lorraine Archer, Nicola Trayford, Pam McNicol, Susan Exton and Susan Fisher.
