The HR Systems & Reporting Team part of the were the winners for the February Exceptional People Team Award and received their prize in a ceremony hosted by Trust Chair David Walker and CEO Dr Nick Walker at the Trust headquarters at Littlemore Mental Health Centre.
CEO Dr Nick Broughton complimented the team on handling the recent transition to NHSP with extraordinary dedication and effort and they celebrated afterwards with coffee and cakes from Charmaine de Souza.
Head of HR Systems & Reporting Sigrid Barnes put forward the team demonstrating that the HR Systems & Reporting team collectively look after and support each other on a daily basis and this was proven during the NHSP transition last December, where they were able to successfully complete this transfer in a very short timeframe with busy workloads, without consultation.
This included working long hours and over the transition weekend where seven colleagues pulled together to manually recall over 15,000 shifts that have been sent to the Oxford Health bank and transfer them back out to the NHSP bank ensuring all notes and changes to the core shifts were reinstated.
Throughout this challenging time, the team continued to support each other whilst being mindful to support their colleagues in the Staffing Solutions team. During the transfer employees that were not involved, supported by picking up the workload, ensuring daily tasks continued to get completed.
In supporting the transfer, the team have used their skills and knowledge to highlight changes the transfer might likely bring, which will impact service users, so that the new in-house temporary staffing team as well as NHSP and ID Medical can find solutions.
This include highlighting the challenges that the First Contact Care team face with temporary staffing as well as many other specific team nuances or management of day-to-day activities that need to be considered as part of the transfer such as the setting up of the clinical access team.
Although they have heavy workloads, the team continue to support colleagues in day-to-day activities by embodying the Trust’s vision of delivering Outstanding Care by an Outstanding Team.
