Jane Grant, Chief Executive
Tonight’s “Celebrating Success” event is a wonderful occasion offering us all the opportunity to showcase what the NHS ethos is all about... going the extra mile to deliver or support the delivery of first class care, compassion and service to patients in Greater Glasgow and Clyde and beyond.
This is the sixth year of our local directorate and partnership awards and they continue to generate extremely positive feedback from staff. It is also my first time as Chief Executive at this event and I am very proud to present the awards to the overall winners in each of the 12 directorates and six partnerships who took part.
The awards recognise and show gratitude to members of staff who have ‘gone the extra mile’ beyond their normal duties, perhaps in situations when they or their service have been put under additional pressure, or have implemented an improvement idea or initiative that has yielded significant benefit.
