Asteral was delighted to sponsor an award at the annual ‘Caring at its Best Awards 2012’ organised by University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust.
The event held on Wednesday 12th September saw over 500 staff, volunteers and supporters for Leicester Hospitals gathered at The Athena in Leicester to watch the evening unfold and winners announced. The night was opened with a routine by local dance company The Starlets which included five hospital staff.
The awards were launched in September 2011 and aim to reward inspirational staff who deserve recognition for their success and commitment to providing ‘Caring at its best.’ Hospital staff – who have ‘gone the extra mile’ for colleagues and patients – were nominated and went through quarterly heats with the finalists gathering at the awards to hear the winners.
Asteral’s CEO, Christopher Langley, presented the ‘We are one team and we are the best when we work together’ award which was won by The Respiratory and Thoracic admin and clerical teams.
Christopher Langley, said, “Patients and NHS Trusts are at the forefront of everything Asteral does and always our top priority. Fundamentally, we want to help the NHS improve patient care and these annual awards recognise the hard work and commitment of the Leicester NHS Trusts staff members. It was a pleasure to attend the awards and present a well deserved recognition to the staff at Leicester Hospitals.”
