"I know that my executive colleagues have enjoyed presenting many of these awards over the last four years and I am immensely proud to be a part of this evening as we recognise staff and volunteers for their contribution to our organisation, their colleagues and of course our patients.

"I would like to thank our esteemed judging panel who in August had the unenviable decision of choosing an overall winner from those who have been recognised over the past 12 months, and for those who were able to join us this evening to present the awards.”  

To highlight the important work of our staff, the Communications team created a video showing Leicester’s Hospitals through the eyes of our patients, which is available to view below.
