The Midlands Partnership Behaviour to Inspire Award recognises someone who ‘lives the values’, is enthusiastic, committed and engaging and who can demonstrate positive outcomes achieved. The judges commented: “It was evident that Natalie and Kate lived the behaviours and values of the Trust; inspiring the whole team in pressured circumstances, resulting in positive outcomes for service users and the wider system.”
380 local NHS staff attended the event, held on 8 November 2018 at the Staffordshire County Showground, which is also an important opportunity for sharing good practice and helping staff to understand their role in the wider service.
MPFT provides physical and mental health, learning disability and adult social care services across Staffordshire, Stoke-on-Trent and Shropshire, but also psychological therapies; drug and alcohol services in prisons; and care for serving MOD personnel across the country.
Neil Carr, Chief Executive said: “One of the Trust’s core objectives is to make this a fantastic place to work where staff feel positive and proud to be part of the organisation. We know that we cannot deliver effective services without well trained and supported staff and believe that offering real recognition in the form of this awards ceremony has a real part to play in creating an enthusiastic, committed and confident workforce.”
