Patrick Onyema wins Apprentice of the Year Gold Award 2019

Patrick was presented with his award at the fourth annual Our Health Heroes awards ceremony at London’s Science Museum, which honours the dedicated hard work our thousands of healthcare support workers and teams carry out across the sector day after day.

Apprentices working in healthcare are vital to support the high demand on the workforce, and often go above and beyond the call of duty. Previous winners of this award have shown a positive attitude and willingness to embrace their role in the workplace for the benefit of patient care and service delivery. Apprentices nominated for this award are not only ambassadors for their apprenticeship, but also the whole healthcare sector.

Patrick said: “I feel very privileged to have been voted to win this award. To me, this means so much and I am so humbled. It’s clear that it’s not the big things you do that make you great, but the little things you do in great ways.”

John Rogers, Chief Executive at Skills for Health, said: “Congratulations to Patrick on being named national winner of the Apprentice of the Year award.

Having read through the nomination which was submitted for Patrick and hearing more about his drive to improve services and care for his patients, I can see why the public voted for him to be our national champion."
