Interserve Prime was a proud sponsor of this year’s Yeovil Hospital iCare Awards, held on Thursday 16 November. The Trust’s annual awards recognise the achievements of staff and volunteers who go the extra mile to make the hospital a better place to work or receive care.
Interserve Prime began working with Yeovil District Hospital NHS Foundation Trust in November 2014, forming the Yeovil Estates Partnership (YEP) – a joint venture to deliver affordable, high quality facilities and improve the patient, visitor and staff experience. Some 2,000 staff are employed by the Hospital, and their input and support has been integral to the success of the YEP.
The fifth annual iCare awards were held at the Gateway in Yeovil. Winners on the night included Emily Whaites (Patient Award), Natasha Bath (Rising Star of the Year Award), Ian Creek (Leadership Award), Julie Reeve (Pioneer Award), Cooksons Court Therapy Team (Team of the Year Award), Sharon Tucker (Lifetime Achievement Award), Ivan Rendell (iCARE Excellence Award) and Bob Norbury (Volunteers Award). There were also a number of awards for length of service, which were presented on the night - three people with 30 years’ service and one celebrating 40 years’.
Leighton Chumbley, Director of Interserve Prime said: “We are very proud to sponsor the iCare Awards and stand alongside the Trust in celebrating the achievements of its staff and volunteers who have done exceptional things to improve the care and experience of their patients or colleagues. We have worked with the hospital for three years now and see the hard work, dedication and enthusiasm they bring to making Yeovil Hospital a great place to work, visit or receive care. Our sincerest congratulations to all the winners, nominees and those taking home a long service award.”
