Hidden Heroes Award
We have today recieved the following from Atherstone Surgery who Spring Hill as well as 2 other GP surgeries teamed up with to deliver the Covid Vaccination Campaign. We are over the moon at the recognition we have all received and would like to thank everyone for their time and dedication that helped make this campaign a success.
Atherstone Vaccination Hub has received a Hidden Heroes award for Outstanding Performance during the Pandemic. The Hidden Heroes initiative was established to identify some of the excellent individuals and teams who would otherwise go without recognition, as well as try to highlight this incredible work that too often goes unnoticed.
Atherstone Vaccination Hub are based at The Atherstone Surgery and won the award for supporting the community throughout the pandemic and saving lives through their excellent vaccination clinics.
Karen Clarke, Practice Manager/Site Lead at Atherstone Surgery received the award on behalf of the team on Thursday June 9th 2022 and said;
I am delighted to accept this award on behalf of the vaccination team. The award is very much deserved as a recognition of all the hard work the staff and volunteers have put in, giving up their free time and weekends to deliver in the region of 35,000 covid vaccinations to our local community. This would simply not have been possible without the enthusiasm of the teams from Atherstone Surgery, Springhill Medical Centre, Station Street Surgery and Chancery Lane Surgery, along with volunteers and community staff. I personally give my thanks to every one of them for making this campaign such a great success.
The awards were established by four Companies who are playing a key role in Supporting General Practice with the pandemic: Dene Healthcare, Gama Healthcare, Interface Clinical Services and Practice Index. Tom Jones of Dene Healthcare who presented the award was quoted as saying: ‘2020 was a hard year for most and sadly the amazing work being done in General Practice is too often overlooked, Atherstone Vaccination Hub are exactly the type of community based service we were hoping to identify and in some small way thank them for their contribution during the most difficult period in modern times. ‘
