Our annual Better Care Together awards took place virtually – to celebrate the dedication and commitment of our teams, colleagues and services.

Along with eight award categories, we also used the event to celebrate the long service of colleagues who have worked for the NHS for 20, 30 and 40 years.

Trust Chair Ingrid Barker, who co-hosted the event alongside Chief Executive Paul Roberts, said: “We were just so proud to be able to recognise and record our appreciation – not only for everyone nominated, and shortlisted but also to all of our Trust colleagues who do so much and have done so much – throughout the Covid pandemic and before – for the people of Gloucestershire.”
