Oxleas celebrates outstanding work at annual Recognition Awards

Outstanding work and achievements were celebrated at the Oxleas NHS Foundation Trust annual Recognition Awards.

We received hundreds of nominations from across our services and this year’s winners were announced in front of 200 colleagues, patients and carers at a special ceremony at Charlton Athletic Football Club.

In addition to the seven ‘Team of the Year’ directorate category awards, we announced the winner of our Governors’ Award – which is chosen by our governors and awarded to someone who makes a real difference to our patients’ lives. Our governors represent local residents and people who use our services.

Naji Mohamed, the winner of our Governors’ Award, has worked within our Adult Learning Disability Services as part of the Community Learning Disability Team for almost 20 years.  He received a large number of nominations from both colleagues and people he has helped over the years.

Oxleas Chief Executive, Ben Travis, said: “Congratulations to all of our winners and to those who were nominated. The awards are one of the ways that we can recognise and reward the hard work of staff, who have often gone ‘above and beyond’ their duties whilst working at Oxleas.

“I’m pleased to be able to thank them on behalf of Oxleas for the exceptional work and care they provide.”
