The coveted ‘Caring at its best’ awards ceremony at the University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust took place on 12th September, with Asteral sponsoring one of the six awards recognising staff and volunteers for their fantastic commitment to patient and staff care.
The event – launched in 2011 – was attended by five hundred staff, volunteers and supporters at The Athena in Leicester. The awards recognise inspirational and exceptional members of staff for their hard work and commitment in providing the best possible care for patients, colleagues and the Trust.
Asteral sponsored the ‘We are one team and we are the best when we work together’ award which was won by Simon Conway and the Emergency Frailty Team at the Leicester Royal Infirmary.
Asteral’s Senior Commercial Manager & Associate Director, David Brand, presented the award and said: “Asteral are delighted to be part of such an inspirational event which observes those individuals and teams that go above-and-beyond to provide admirable care to patients and their families. Helping the NHS to improve patient care has always been a fundamental objective of Asteral so it’s a pleasure to be involved in an occasion that celebrates the same set of values.”
