CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL THE STAFF AT NRC MEDICAL
On Monday 13th April the Medical PRU, New River College, was awarded The Staff Excellence Award by Simon Pleydell, Chief Executive of Whittington Health. Simon said that our service was often forgotten, but as a parent and a Chief Executive he explained how much he appreciated our good work.
Head of Centre Rosemarie Hilditch thanked Simon and gave him a copy of The Whittington Treasure. The book was written by past and present staff to celebrate 60 years of Children’s Education at the Whittington Hospital.
Rosemarie said how delighted she was to receive the Excellence Award and to have the work of all the staff recognised by the Whittington Health. She thanked the teachers and learning assistants for their dedication and for providing education support to pupils in the Whittington Hospital and to pupils with medical needs who live in Islington.
Staff at the Whittington Hospital can be nominated for an Excellence Award by colleagues or patients. The ward manager who nominated the NRC Medical team said:
“They provide an amazing service….they are compassionate, caring, supportive and always willing to go the extra mile to help the children and adolescents on Ifor Ward and in the community.”
