Wirral University Teaching Hospital has received an award from The High Sheriff of Merseyside. Staff at Arrowe Park and Clatterbridge received the honour in recognition of their work in the community since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The High Sheriff, who is the Queen’s judicial representative on Merseyside, praised the efforts of staff across the whole team.
The High Sheriff Award also recognises the appreciation of the residents and people of the community of the County for activity and contribution in enhancing the life of the community.
His Honour John Roberts DL, immediate past High Sheriff of Merseyside, said, “It is my great pleasure to present the Trust with a High Sheriff Award in recognition of the wonderful work that it has done for the community in the last 12 months.
“It seems to me that what has been achieved these last twelve months in terms of addressing the Trust’s normal workload and coping with the COVID-19 pandemic would not have been remotely possible without everybody working as one big team and in a totally committed and selfless way. Watching and reading about the work of the NHS from a distance, as I have done, has been nothing short of amazing. ”
Janelle Holmes, Chief Executive at Wirral University Teaching Hospital, said, “I am honoured and delighted to have accepted this High Sheriff Award on behalf of all my colleagues at Wirral University Teaching Hospital, recognising their dedication and hard work over the past year.
“Over the past year our staff have continued to put the care of our patients first and I am extremely proud of how they have faced an unprecedented challenge. We have also been overwhelmed by the support from people in the Wirral community. We would ask people to please continue to show support by staying safe and following national guidance.”
