Chief Nurse makes first gold and silver awards for nursing and midwifery excellence

The winner of the gold award for nursing was Amanda Hobson from Salford Care Organisation and the winner of the silver award was Shelby Greyson from North Manchester Care Organisation.

 

Congratulations to Karen Clough who works at the Oldham and North Manchester Care Organisations for winning the gold award for midwifery, and to Vimbai Carr from the North Manchester Care Organisation for winning the silver award.

 

Each winner is awarded a certificate and badge and gets to attend a thankyou ceremony attended by Group Chief Nursing Officer Elaine Inglesby-Burke CBE.

 

The NCA set up the new NCA Nursing and Midwifery Awards after Elaine Inglesby-Burke CBE was awarded NHS England’s first national Chief Nursing Officer’s (CNO) Gold Award for Nursing.

 

The group executives decided to introduce the awards for the NCA, which brings together Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust and The Pennine Acute Hospitals NHS Trust.

 

The NCA Nursing and Midwifery Awards recognise and award individuals who have excelled in their performance by the giving of a silver or gold recognition badge and certificate.

 

The gold badge and certificate are awarded for outstanding achievement and exceptional/significant contributions by an individual with a distinguished career in nursing or midwifery. The silver badge and certificate are awarded for performance that goes beyond the expectations of the job.

 

Elaine Inglesby-Burke CBE, Group Chief Nursing Officer at The Northern Care Alliance NHS Group said:

 

“I am delighted to make these four awards to honour the hard work, dedication and amazing standard of care each of these professionals brings to our organisation. We have introduced these awards for the first time this year and each year we will choose four new worthy winners. It is my way of saying thank you to each and every one of them. They are all well-deserved winners.

 

Elaine added:

 

“The NCA Nursing and Midwifery Awards gold award recognises excellence in those staff who have gone beyond their role and are leaving a legacy of excellence in their field. The silver award is for an individual who is beginning their nursing journey, but who has excelled and gone above and beyond in practice.”

 

Gold winning nurse Amanda Hobson, Lead Nurse for Adult Community Services at Salford Care Organisation, said:

“To receive such an award has made me feel proud and privileged to be a nurse serving the patients and families of Salford.”

In all, the NCA employs over 7,000 nurses and midwives at hospitals in Salford, Oldham, Bury, Rochdale and North Manchester.
