A roaring success at the 2019 St George’s Hero Awards

22nd May 2019

On 16 May 2019 St George’s Hospital Charity hosted the St George’s Hero Awards at Wandsworth Civic Suite, compered by TV presenter and actress Lorraine Kelly.

St George’s Hospital Charity was delighted to be hosting the awards for the second year – a chance for us to come together and celebrate the amazing work carried out by staff across our NHS Trust.

The evening saw hundreds of staff and supporters of St George’s Hospital Charity celebrating the amazing work of our hospitals. Every day we hear about the incredible work our staff do, so it was a pleasure to be able to recognise some of these contributions at last week’s ceremony.

With so many inspiring individuals in the room it was incredibly difficult to pick winners, but in the end the top honours went to:

  • Team of the Year – awarded to: The Staff Flu Vaccination team and the Specialist Nurses in Organ Donation team
  • Volunteer of the Year – awarded to: Alan Bowen, St George’s Hospital Charity
  • Innovation of the Year – awarded to: New Beginnings
  • Rising Star – awarded to: Stacey Lane, General Porter
  • Lifetime Achievement – awarded to: Karen Marks, Acting Deputy Head of the South West Thames Genetics Laboratory
  • Inspirational Leader – awarded to: Professor Asma Khalil, Consultant Obstetrician
  • Unsung Hero – awarded to: Pearl Livingstone, Admin & Pathway Co-ordinator
  • The Katherine Award - Lifesaver of the Year – awarded to: Dr Thomas Breen, Consultant Anaesthetist, Dr Donovan Duffy, Consultant Neonatologist, Mr Zahid Mukhtar, Consultant Paediatric Surgeon and teams

We were so inspired to hear the stories of our incredible staff, and reminded again how grateful we are for the care and love shown by everyone who works at #StGeorgesTrust

Thank you to all involved in making this evening’s awards possible, and to our friends at Pelican London Hotel & Residence and Yellow Brick for sponsoring the event.
