Staff from Boston’s Pilgrim Hospital were rewarded for their hard work at a special awards evening.

The Accident and Emergency team at the Sibsey Road hospital joined staff at the A&E units in Lincoln and Grantham in scooping the Chief Executive’s award.

There was a Pilgrim double in the Unsung Hero Award, with housekeeper Chris Sharpe announced as winner and assistant practitioner Sharon Taylor coming highly-commended.

Mean while, Val Blatchford was highly-commended for the Great Patient Experience Award and Pilgrim breast unit doctor Elham Abdelaziz for the Compassion and Respect Towards Others Award.

Pilgrim specialist glaucoma nurse Darralynne Stell was also highly-commended in the Improving Patient Services Award.

More than 150 members of staff, from a broad range of roles right across the United Lincolnshire Hospitals Trust attended the second annual staff awards at Lincolnshire Showground.

Each highly-commended and overall award winner was presented with a trophy or certificate by a member of the executive team or one of the sponsors.

Members of the public, patients and carers had been invited to nominate staff who they believe have shown dedication and commitment to providing high quality care.

About 150 nominations were received in total, showcasing the enthusiasm and quality of care that is given to colleagues, as well as patients.

After one of the busiest winter periods in recent history, the evening brought 
together staff and patients from across Lincolnshire and provided a glimpse of the inspirational work and care that is delivered every day.

Chairman Ron Buchanan said: “The event was a great way to celebrate the achievements and successes of colleagues who work tirelessly.”
