A PRESTIGIOUS award was won by the Frimley NHS Foundation Trust for its voluntary services team.

The Trust took down the Team of the Year award at the Patient Experience Network national awards last week.

It was in recognition of the team who co-ordinates all voluntary work across Frimley Park Hospital, Wexham Park Hospital and Heatherwood Hospital.

Director of nursing, Nicola Ranger, said: “I am delighted with the outstanding work of our voluntary services team has been recognised with this award.”

Voluntary service managers Mike Stone and Harpreet Rall accepted the award at the ceremony held in Birmingham.

“Our patients are at the heart of everything we do and Mike and Harpreet get the best out of our fabulous volunteers to ensure people being treated in our hospitals are as comfortable as possible,” added Nicola.

The voluntary services team was also shortlisted in the Thames Valley and Wessex Leadership Academy recognition awards in March.

Meanwhile, Frimley Heatlh has also shortlisted for the Patient Safety Awards which are to be held in Manchester in July.
