The other nominees have all been presented with a certificate of achievement. The criteria behind the Care with Confidence awards, which were held after the CCG’s Annual General Meeting have been driven by the 6C’s but have been expanded to include 12 other areas that the Telford and Wrekin Patient Health Round Table felt were important. Entries were judged, based on the evidence, provided in the nomination form, which reflected one or more of the CCG’s 18Cs, (which are: Care, Commitment, Courage, Compassion, Communication, Competence, Consideration, Credibility, Culture, Contingency, Commissioning, Confidentiality, Comforting, Common sense, Confidence, Creative, Clarity, Co-ordination).

Dr Jo Leahy, Chair of the CCG said:  “We had some fantastic nominations from across the health and care sector including both individuals and teams at the Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust, voluntary organisations, not for profit organisations as well as charities and it was really difficult to choose our eventual winners, as the standard was just so high.

She added: “To see so many people here tonight to celebrate all those who have gone and above and beyond to deliver health and related service for the benefit of our patients is absolutely fantastic. I would like to congratulate all our winners, all those who were nominated and thank all those who took the time to put forward nominations. It’s been an absolute privilege to be involved all our winners and those nominated recognised for all their hard work.”

Photographs of the winners and nominees will soon be available.
