Speaking about the awards Provide’s Chairman, Derrick Louis said:

“These awards recognise and acknowledge the commitment, hard work and achievement of our staff. We celebrate the exceptional teams and individuals who have gone above and beyond what is required of them to provide an excellent level of service. It is an occasion where we publically recognise these successes. We also acknowledge staff who have achieved national recognition.”

“There was an outstanding response for our Care and Compassion Award with patients, carers and their families nominating services and individuals they feel deserve to be recognised for their hard work and inspiring efforts.

“Many entries demonstrated how caring, compassionate and valued our staff are and I was proud to hear about the support shown by our staff to patients, often at difficult times for families.”
