The team at West Herts NNHS Trust were invited to an event hosted by the OPL (Overseas Pakistan Lovers) for a special award
The Covid-19 Champion Community Appreciation Award was in recognition of all the hard work the Mortuary staff did during the Pandemic.
"It was truly an honour to be included amongst amazing charities, businesses and individuals that all worked tirelessly throughout the pandemic to support the local community. It was a really special event which was attended by local MP’s, Member of Lords, Mayors, CLLR’s and community Leaders who gave out the awards and gave their thanks to all that attended.
The team not know we were receiving this award which made it even more of a surprise! We have a fantastic team here at West Herts and everyone gave their all during the pandemic to keep the Mortuary service running smoothy. At a point we were working what felt like 7 days and week, 24hours a day to make sure there was enough space across our two sites. It really is humbling to know that even after things have settled down that all the hard work had an impact"
