Award winning NNUH Apprenticeship Team

Staff from Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital have won two categories at the Norfolk and Suffolk Practice Education and Learning Support Awards 2015.

Sue Kerry, NNUH Chief Biomedical Scientist in Pathology and Steph Baker, NNUH Specimen Reception Manager in Pathology won the ‘Learning Support in the Apprenticeships category’. Leah Cooper, NNUH Lead Clinical Scientist won Educator/Supervisor Award in the Allied Health Professionals category.

The award ceremony held at Dunston Hall on Monday also saw two other NNUH teams nominated, Main Theatres and Head and Neck.

Run by the Norfolk and Suffolk Workforce Partnership, the awards commend excellence and recognise individuals and teams who have made an outstanding contribution to the overall growth, development and education of pre-registration healthcare students and learners.

NNUH Career Development Co-ordinator, Annie Cook, said: “We’re really pleased for all those who were nominated and especially those who have gone on to win. Sue and Steph have both been instrumental in building Apprenticeships into their teams and in doing so have created a proven entry level career pathway to a Biomedical Science degree.”

Jeremy Over, NNUH Director of Workforce, commented: “We are absolutely thrilled that our teams have done so well in these awards. At NNUH, building the workforce of the future to meet the changing needs of our patients is crucial, and awards such as these demonstrate our commitment to this as a team and a trust.”
