Let’s sing the praises of staff tonight!
Our Celebrating Success Platinum Staff Awards is a real highlight of the calendar. It is a brilliant evening of recognition and inspiration.
It is also a terrific opportunity to highlight what is best about the NHS and its people and also recognise your dedication and commitment to patient care and it is a night to recognise that every single one of us has a vital role to deliver services for patients.
With more than 350 entries to the Chairman’s Platinum Awards, and more than 200 nominations to the local directorate and partnership awards, it is clear to me that there is an abundance of great work going on across our Health Board area.
I want to thank you all for your efforts throughout the year – for all your work in helping drive forward quality and safety improvements and service innovation. I also want to thank you all for putting our patients first and for your dedication and professional pride in the job you do – whether it be clinical or non-clinical; patient facing or support roles.
Tonight is your night to enjoy and to help make the event extra special for the 70th NHS Anniversary we have created a Platinum theme to the awards. I’m also delighted that the magnificent Queen Elizabeth University Hospital and Royal Hospital for Children Choir will “raise the roof” to get proceedings off to a rousing start.
The only regret I have on a night like tonight is that it’s not possible to invite all 38,000 staff to join us!
