2018 Editions


Aspire - Autumn / Winter 2018

Recognition can be a very powerful way of demonstrating the value colleagues bring and to gather us together around a shared vision or goal.

The Staff Achievement Awards are always the highlight of the ASPH calendar and a superb occasion to take some time out and appreciate everything colleagues do day-in day-out, for patients, their teams and each other. We hosted an afternoon tea for about 300 colleagues and took the opportunity to celebrate with the Long Service Award winners for their amazing commitment and service to the Trust.
