Announcing our 2020 Awards Winners

Individual Development

David Carter, Co-ordinator Maintenance at Worcester Health & Care NHS Trust.

David has worked to develop the quality of the data from the CAFM system, transform the relationship between the trades and record-keeping and improve understanding between the management team and trades.

 

People Development

Mike Hill, Head of Estates at Liverpool University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

Difficulties with recruiting quality engineering and trades staff as a result of skills shortages led the Trust to introduce its own programme for 'home-grown' talent by upskilling existing staff, recruiting and developing apprentices and trainees.

 

Efficiency & Improvement

Jon Byrne, Environmental Manager at the Mersey Care NHS Foundation Trust.

Jon has developed a zero-cost tool to monitor clinical waste pre-acceptance audits, improving productivity by recording data in real-time and leading to greater efficiencies in the Trust's waste streams.

 

Project of the Year

The Derriford Winter ED Scheme 'Big Build' at the University Hospitals Plymouth NHS Trust.

This project extended the Paediatric Emergency Department and improved the Resuscitation area, providing accommodation for staff and patients that is fit for purpose, offers enhanced security and calming features for more distressed patients, such as a Hurricane tube and Magic Carpet.

 

Team of the Year

Group Catering, Estates and Facilities Teams at The Northern Care Alliance (NCA) NHS Group.

The teams have delivered significant and sustainable service improvement for staff, patients and visitors from the Jewish faith community by establishing Shabbos Rooms to provide 24/7 access to facilities for rest as well as hot and cold Kosher food.

 

Leader of the Year

Stuart Windsor, Director of Estates & Facilities at University Hospitals Plymouth NHS Trust.

Stuart was recognised for his inclusive, consultative and inspirational leadership style which is driving service improvement through a clear and common vision that is shared and has been developed, organically, by the whole team. He is highly respected throughout the Trust and is as much a mentor as a manager.
