It offers us a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the professionalism, passion and commitment to care that is delivered day in, day out by our staff, and gives us the chance to acknowledge and thank everyone for their hard work and dedication. We received an incredible number of nominations this year and all our finalists and winners should be extremely proud of themselves.”
