The body responsible for buying in health services for the people in Telford and Wrekin is to hold its first awards ceremony next month.
Telford and Wrekin Clinical Commissioning Group’s (CCG) first Care with Confidence Awards are being held on Tuesday September 8th as part of the organisation’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) at the town’s Holiday Inn.
The CCG, whose members plan and commission health services will recognise those who go above and beyond to deliver health services across the area.
The criteria behind the Care with Confidence awards have been driven by the national 6C’s agenda which are; Care, Courage, Compassion, Commitment, Communication and Competence.
The CCG has expanded these further to capture other aspects that warrant acknowledgement and reflect the aspirations the organisation is looking for when commissioning local services.
As well as the awards the CCG will be presenting their Annual Report and Accounts, looking back over the last 12 months and looking to the future. Various presentations will also be held on the evening.
David Evans, Chief Executive Officer of the CCG, said he was pleased with the response to the awards, which attracted more than 20 nominations.
“We know that there are many examples of excellent care both in our hospitals and in the local community,” he said.
“The awards give us a chance to applaud those who go the extra mile in delivering and improving care for those who need it and their families.”
He added: “There are many out there who go and above and beyond the call of duty for the benefit of our patients but they do not always get the recognition and the praise they deserve.
"We hope our awards will help us change that by celebrating those who have gone the extra mile in the quest for excellence.
"I would urge as many members of the public to attend as possible to celebrate the achievements made locally and to find out about the great work our CCG has done over the last 12 months.”
The AGM and Awards Evening is open to the public to attend and will run from 6pm to 8.30pm in the Reynolds Suite, Holiday Inn, St Quentin Gate, Telford TF3 4EH.
