NHS commissioning staff honoured for year of dedication

Staff have been honoured for their hard work and dedication when local NHS commissioners held their annual awards.

The staff awards were held jointly by Cannock Chase, South East Staffordshire and Seisdon Peninsula and Stafford & Surrounds Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) at County Buildings, Stafford.

They were held on the theme of the CCGs values; we are honest, accessible and we listen, care and respect for all, quality is our day job and we innovate and deliver.

Dr Mo Huda, Chair of Cannock Chase CCG, opened the award ceremony on behalf of all three CCGs and said: “The CCGs have a small and dedicated staff who are all committed to serving our patients and the NHS. It is important that we take time to recognise their achievements.

“Our staff are not as high profile and visible to the public as doctors and nurses. However they are absolutely vital and local health services could not function effectively without them.

“As commissioning organisations we are dedicated to ensuring that we make decisions that will benefit our patients, and that involves listening to them and learning from patient experience.”
