The team were presented with the award by Service Manager Gaurav Salhotra and Interim Clinical Director Tina Malhotra. They had been nominated by Jeff Parker, Service Manager for the Urgent Care Pathway in Buckinghamshire, who praised how the whole team had supported new colleagues in establishing the Gateway Single Point of Access service. Jeff said:

“The team were delighted to receive the award, especially for being recognised at a time when all services are particularly busy and stretched.”

In his nomination Jeff wrote:

“With the support of their manager, the team have come together to support the newly established Gateway team after the departure of their own leader as the team started to form.  They have ensured that the new Gateway staff have been fully supported in their induction to the Trust and have provided day-to-day support to these colleagues to ensure clinically safe practice. The Gateway staff have been welcomed into their new roles and have been fully supported in the dynamic new challenges that providing a Single Point of Access brings.

“This has been in addition to their own busy working lives. The team approach has been an invaluable support the new team who are waiting for their own manager and other senior staff to start with the Trust in the new year. “
