It is the support we receive from sponsors that makes it possible for us to celebrate and honour in a fitting way those who improve the lives of those we serve.
(PRWEB UK) 12 November 2013
As part of its lasting commitment to supporting Trusts and commending the outstanding achievements of NHS staff, ID Medical presented Shameem Zia Gissa with the ‘Young Achiever Award,’ an award which pays tribute to Michael McNally, a Finance Cadet whose young life was sadly cut short in 2011.
This award celebrates the achievement of an inspirational young person (aged 14 to 24) who has made an outstanding contribution to the life of a service user or the work of the Trust.
Harjit Nandha, Mental Health division manager at ID Medical, is pictured presenting Shameem Zia Gissa with her Young Achiever Award. Shameem, a clinical psychology student, took on the task of developing a booklet for Muslim carers and families to overcome the possible inequalities experienced by Muslim people with learning difficulties.
Harjit commented: “I felt extremely privileged to present Shameem with the Young Achiever Award.
“With 1 in 4 people in the UK experiencing a mental health problem, ID Medical understands the importance of having the sustained presence of highly specialised and committed mental health professionals to deliver high quality care to patients experiencing mental health difficulties.
“It is clear that Shameem has played a key role in helping Mersey Care become the esteemed and reputable mental health trust that it is today.
“Our involvement with Mersey Care’s Positive Achievement Awards gave us the opportunity to join the trust in recognising those awe-inspiring individuals making a positive influence. I would like to say special thanks to Mersey Care NHS Trust for enabling us to be a part of the event and congratulations once again to all nominated staff.”
Chief executive of Mersey Care NHS Trust Joe Rafferty said: “It is the support we receive from sponsors that makes it possible for us to celebrate and honour in a fitting way those who improve the lives of those we serve.”
BBC TV Breakfast Show business reporter Stephanie McGovern and Everton footballing legend Derek Temple were also among the award presenters.
