Barnet, Enfield and Haringey Mental Health Trust receives Compassion in Care award
Mental-health care workers have received awards for their compassion towards patients.
Individuals and teams from Barnet, Enfield and Haringey Mental Health NHS Trust were praised on Thursday night for their compassion, respect and courtesy to patients as part of the compassion in care awards.
The celebration coincides with NHS England’s ‘week of action’ for its compassion in practice programme.
Mary Sexton, executive director of nursing, quality and governance at the trust, paid tribute to the work of the staff.
She said: “Our trust prides itself on the compassion shown to our patients and service users.
“Our staff are dedicated to going the extra mile, and are a demonstration of the compassion in practice values in action.
“I am delighted that they are being recognised for their hard work.”
Among those to be praised was Haringey's improving access to psychological therapies team, who received excellent patient feedback after providing improved care for Turkish patients.
Staff were also recognised for going out of their way to meet complex needs of patients in often difficult circumstances.
The programme seeks to emphasise the ‘6Cs’ - care, compassion, communication, competence, commitment and courage – among their workers.
