The Chief Executive Ann Marr opened the evening with her welcome speech and confirmed it had been the Trusts most successful year as being rated as an “Outstanding” trust and hoped that this would continue into 2017…. ms Marr then announced the Special Acievement Awards for 2016 and these 2 very special awards went to the Outpatients Department at St Helens & Whiston Hospitals and also to the Diagnostic Imaging Departments again at St Helens & Whiston Hospitals.

The evening then went into full swing with entertainment from guest appearance Will Mellor & Ray Quinn with Cole Page & Schwing providing the music.
There is absolutely NO cost to the NHS event – it is funded purely through ticket sales, fundraising and generous donations from many of the Trusts partners.
Well done to St Helens & Knowsley Trust on organising a spectacular evening for your employees and recognising the hard work, dedication and achievements.
I just wanted to say a huge thank you for supporting this year’s St Helens and Knowsley Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust Awards evening.
Without your very generous sponsorship we simply could not celebrate the amazing work of our staff in this (rather incredible) way.
I hope Joanne and Vicky enjoyed the evening, I’ve had some excellent feedback and everyone is already talking about next year’s event!
Thanks again for all your support it really is appreciated more than you will ever know.
Hope we can work together again soon……
