SaTH will tonight celebrate the fantastic achievements of staff and volunteers at the annual Values in Practice (VIP) Awards.

The winners will be announced at a glittering ceremony at the Telford International Centre this evening.

Paula Clark, Chief Executive of SaTH, said: “Every day across our Trust we see and hear of acts from our teams, and from individuals, which demonstrate how they live our Values, often going above and beyond the call of duty.

“These awards are just a small way of saying thank you. We must also say congratulations to all of the other nominees who, while they may not have made the shortlist, have certainly made a positive impact throughout the year. Thank you, too, to everyone who took the time to nominate.”

The evening event will be preceded this afternoon by SaTH’s annual Long Service Awards, for individuals marking 25 or 40 years’ service with the NHS.
