Achievement Awards Winners 2018
The hard work and dedication of staff from across NHS Fife has been celebrated at a special awards ceremony.
Over 100 people attended the 2018 NHS Fife Achievement Awards, held in partnership with Unison Fife Health Branch and the Royal College of Nursing, at the Bay Hotel in Kinghorn.
The awards have become an important event in the NHS Fife calendar, with a record number of nominations received from across the organisation this year.
Individuals and teams were recognised in 10 award categories including, Young Achiever, Support Services, Unsung Hero, Doctor, Allied Health Professional and Nursing & Midwifery.
In addition, a new award was launched – the Outstanding Member of Staff Award. The award, voted for by staff across NHS Fife, was won by Arlene Higgins, a Ward Clerk in Maternity.
As part of the evening finalists were also treated to a performance by the NHS Fife staff choir, Healthy Harmonies, who sang a medley of songs taken from their successful show at the recent Edinburgh Fringe.
NHS Fife Chair, Tricia Marwick, said: “The NHS Fife Achievement Awards are a great opportunity to celebrate the outstanding work and commitment of our staff.
“We are lucky to have so much talent in Departments across Fife and it is humbling to hear the extraordinary lengths our staff will go to, to deliver the very best services and care.
“Although not everyone can win an award, we are justly proud to have such dedicated, innovative and hardworking staff, here in Fife.”
