The Kingston Primary Care Mental Health Team was taken by surprise on Thursday 29th November when they were presented with the Star of the Month award after being nominated by Kingston Borough Manager, Maria O’Dwyer.
The nomination highlighted the team’s dedicated efforts to keep appointment waiting times low and their work to enhance their service to meet service user needs. It also noted how in the last quarter, 100% of service users felt their concerns were heard, that they were treated with dignity and respect and were involved in the decisions concerning their treatment.
Maria said: “The team demonstrates great kindness in their clinical work with servicer users and when working with each other and I’m so pleased the team has been commended with the Star of the Month award!”
The team was presented with an M&S voucher, certificate, badge and biscuits by Director of Finance, Dave Wragg. Dave said: “The team provides an invaluable service and works hard to support service users with psychological needs. Congratulations to all the PCMHT colleagues – you are a credit to the Trust.”
Dr Hamid Rahmanian, Kingston PCMHT Consultant Psychiatrist said: “As a team, it’s an honour to be recognised for the work we do for our service users. Our thanks go to the Trust for presenting us with the award.”
