Staff praised at 'Building for the Future' awards ceremony

Two of our staff - Katherine Burns, Community Learning Disability Nurse, and Josie Lemon, Dental Officer - were recently praised by our Prime Minister and local MP, Theresa May, at the 'Building for the Future' awards ceremony at Sonning golf course.

The Prime Minister went on to present Katherine, winner of the 'Medical Professional of the Year' category which both she and Josie were nominated for, with her award.

Katherine was nominated by a parent who was particularly impressed with the support she gave to her daughter with Down ’s syndrome.

Josie was nominated by a mother of a teenage boy and described her as, "a kind, caring, calm and patient and always makes my son feel included."

CEO of Building for the Future, Jane Holmes said: "It was a complete privilege to celebrate these very special people and welcoming the Prime Minister to present the prizes was an absolute honour."

Congratulations to Josie and Katherine and all our staff who work incredibly hard to give our patients the best quality service.
