A Knowsley NHS worker has been crowned ‘Community Leader of the Year’ in the regional NHS Leadership Recognition Awards 2013.
The glittering event was designed to celebrate the contribution of NHS leaders - highlighting the work that is being done to improve health and well-being for people across the region.
“I felt honoured to represent my team who do some brilliant work across Knowsley - supporting residents to make positive changes to their lifestyle,” says Susannah who works within Community Health Services, provided by 5 Boroughs Partnership NHS Foundation Trust.
“I’d recommend anyone to have an informal chat with us at the Lifestyle Hub on freephone 0800 073 1202. We can advise how we - along with our other healthcare partners - can support you to meet your personal lifestyle goals, whatever they might be.”
Susannah was nominated for the honour by Nicky Over, Business Manager of the Dietetics & Wellbeing service.
“We are very proud of Susannah and all her colleagues within the Community Health Development Team, which is funded by Knowsley Council,” says Nicky.
“The team have strived to make the service more person-centred and offer the best support possible to people accessing the service. We are committed to continuing to work positively with the local community to further enhance the health and well-being of Knowsley.”
All winners from the regional recognition awards will be entered to the national leadership recognition awards later in the year; competing with peers across the country and attending a ceremony in February 2014.
