We are delighted to announce four of our staff have been recognised as inspirational women leaders across the NHS in London. As part of the NHS70 celebrations the NHS London Leadership Academy requested nominations for staff from London NHS organisations. Over 150 nominations were received and 70 women leaders were chosen following judging panels.
The staff from NELFT who were recognised are:
Laura Stuart Neil, lead for Allied Health Professions and lead for Quality Improvement. Laura’s nomination stated that she is constantly compassionate in all her interactions she has with staff, patients and partners, even in difficult and problematic situations.
Lindsay Royan, clinical psychologist. She was recognised for her goodwill, experience, insight and compassion. Lindsay was also awarded the NELFT Lifetime Achievement Award earlier this year as part of the Trust’s NHS70 celebrations.
Sujaa Arokiadass, consultant psychiatrist. Sujaa was nominated for her support and development of others through coaching, mentoring and sharing resources. She believes in supporting all staff to reach their potential regardless of their backgrounds.
Carrie-Ann Wade, director of communications. She was recognised for her passion and support to professionalise communications within the NHS and for her work to support and develop communications colleagues both within the Trust and more widely.
All NHS70 Women Leaders received a certificate and pin badge at the ceremony in London on 4 July. Later in the year they will be offered access to a leadership development session and the opportunity to apply for a leadership development course.
