Speaking about the awards Provide’s Chairman, Derrick Louis said:
“These annual staff awards highlight the commitment, compassion and innovation of our staff and volunteers. They also demonstrate the exceptional and inspiring efforts that have been made to improve the care that we deliver.
“It was difficult to judge many of the categories as there were many high quality entries, so my congratulations to every individual and team who were nominated and to all those who received Long Service or Educational Awards.”

At the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, we reviewed how we deliver all our services in line with the government and NHS England guidance, and as such we stopped delivering all but the most clinically essential face to face appointments for our service users.
In light of the recent changes we are working to restart delivery of our services again. In order to protect our service users, staff and the wider community from the risk of COVID-19 our service may be delivered in different ways to how they were previously.
Please visit our COVID-19 page https://www.provide.org.uk/service-update-following-covid-19-outbreak/ for more information on the changes to our services.
Did you know? Our organisation is part of the My Care Record approach which has been supporting the work of health and care organisations across the East of England during the COVID-19 pandemic. For example, making sure doctors, nurses and co-ordination staff at places you may receive advice or treatment can see important information from your patient record. This could include NHS treatment centres such as the London NHS Nightingale Hospital, making it easier and faster for them to deliver effective care.
