The borough's NHS trust will once again be holding its annual Pride awards to recognise the hard work and dedication of its staff.
The Hospital Hero category in the Barking, Havering and Redbridge University Hospitals NHS Trust (BHRUT)’s awards, is the only one voted for by the public.
Last year’s winner was the trust’s maternity team and community midwife Rebecca McKeon, who has worked at the trust for six years, said the whole team was over the moon.
She said: “When I found out about it I felt really proud, it was lovely to have that recognition from our patients to say we’re doing a good job.
“I’ve wanted to be a midwife ever since I was a little girl so it was really gratifying.”
Residents can nominate anyone in the trust, which runs Queen’s and King George hospitals, whether it’s a doctor or nurse, a receptionist or the team whose work led to their diagnosis.
The awards will be held on Tuesday, December 11.
