Millbrook health ‘heroes’ honoured

STAFF at Sutton’s Millbrook Mental Healthcare Unit are celebrating a hat-trick of successes at Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust’s annual ‘OSCARS’ awards.

General manager Nick Daibell received the Lifetime Achievement Award for his 36 years’ service working for the trust.

Health chiefs described him as an ‘inspirational’ leader who has patients and service users at the ‘heart of everything he does, including personally making sure he sees everyone on Christmas Day.

The Liam O’Neill Fighting Stigma Award went to the unit’s Positive about Panthers Project Team for its work to support and promote a health and wellbeing campaign between the trust and ice hockey team, Nottingham Panthers.

And Millbrook’s Peer Support Worker Team and their counterparts in Nottingham were presented with the Equality and Diversity Award.

Speaking of the staff and volunteers at the trust, chief executive Prof Mike Cooke, said: “Their hard work is truly valued and makes a real difference to everyone who uses our services.”

The OSCARS - the ‘Outstanding Service Contribution and Recognition Scheme’ - are in their ninth year and were held at the East Midlands Conference Centre in Nottingham.
