Delivering Excellence Awards 2015 Bunting

Congratulations to our 2016 award-winning teams

Derbyshire Healthcare held its annual Delivering Excellence Team Awards ceremony in Derby on Thursday 15 December to celebrate some of the outstanding work of teams in our Trust.

Following the presentation of the individual awards at an afternoon tea on 29 November, the shortlisted teams were invited to an evening event at our Centre for Research & Development on the Kingsway Site. 

They had been selected by a panel after each team had been visited by a group of staff, governors and external representatives during 2016 - as part of our 'quality visit' process. 

The winners were honoured with trophies and certificates presented by the Trust's directors and acting chief executive Ifti Majid.

2016 Delivering Excellence Team Awards - DEED of the Year - Andrea Anthony and Tina Daly

Our staff recognition scheme, the DEED scheme, continues to celebrate many staff who are ‘delivering excellence every day’. At the end of each month, a DEED ‘colleague of the month’ is chosen.

The ‘colleague of the month’ winners from the last year were considered by a judging panel for this award, ‘DEED of the year’.

The award was won by Andrea Anthony and Tina Daly, who work in the Derbyshire Substance Misuse Service based at Erewash House in Ilkeston. Andrea and Tina witnessed an individual known to the team (but not an open client) collapse outside public toilets in Ilkeston. Being aware that the person was at high risk of overdose, they went to check on him and decided he was likely experiencing a heroin overdose. They called an ambulance but also made the decision to administer Naloxone to him immediately, to block the effects of the heroin. Their quick response and action brought the individual round from the overdose and almost certainly saved a life.

2016 Delivering Excellence Team Awards - special recognition - flu peer vaccinators

Our flu peer vaccinators were recognised for their work in enabling colleagues to get the flu jab.

Collecting the award on their behalf was Julie Carvin, who organised the flu peer vaccinator scheme. 

At the time of the awards ceremony, Julie had personally vaccinated over 40 members of staff.

The award was presented by Samantha Harrison, director of corporate affairs and Trust secretary (right), and acting chief executive Ifti Majid (left).
