ELHT Chief Executive, Kevin McGee, told staff during the glittering ceremony at the Mercure Dunkenhalgh Hotel: “Congratulations to the winners and the very many staff who were shortlisted and nominated this year. I believe this huge number of nominations from both patients and colleagues really reflects our exceptional staff who go above and beyond to provide the best possible quality of care to patients.”
