Linea was privileged to be asked by North Middlesex University Hospital NHS Trust to support their annual Staff Awards.
Staff from North Middlesex University Hospital NHS Trust switched their uniforms for ball gowns and bow ties to attend this year’s Our Staff Awards event ceremony at North London’s Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
The glamourous event was hosted by magician and compere Nicholas Einhorn who expertly guided guests through the evening’s proceedings. The ceremony also welcomed special guest and Spurs legend, Ledley King – a former player turned first-team coach at Tottenham Hotspur Football Club – who welcomed attendees to the stadium.
The annual awards celebration was broadcast live on North Mid’s official Vimeo channel as part of the hybrid event, to enable more people to attend the ceremony virtually. During the ceremony, a short feel-good film called ‘Dear North Mid’ featuring patients and members of the local community thanking staff for their service was played.
In recognition of the amazing work, care and services being delivered across North Mid, staff were invited to nominate their peers across 13 categories including Clinical Team of Year, Volunteer of the Year, Unsung Hero and Sustainability Champion. Over 540 entries – the highest number ever – were received by the award judges, comprising of executive directors and former award winners, who voted to award accolades to a total of 33 winners and runners up.
This year’s awards were funded in part by the North Mid Charity which raises funds to support the wellbeing of both staff and patients and donations provided by Linea and a number of businesses and organisations, many of which work closely with the Trust.
Linea CEO, Ian Chambers said “We are honoured to support the NMUH Staff Awards. We had the opportunity to work closely with many of the team during the height of the pandemic and it is wonderful to see staff receive the recognition they deserve”.
