Project SEARCH Partners Win National Award
In March, Bradford Teaching Hospitals found out they had been shortlisted for the University of Bradford Award for Cross-Sector Working at the Healthcare People Management Association (HPMA) Awards 2018.
These awards recognise and reward outstanding work in healthcare human resource management.
As one of only four finalists in the category, the team presented to a panel of judges details about the partnership work involved in Project|SEARCH Bradford, as well as the work with our Business Advisory Committee, and how this has helped support 26 graduates into paid employment.
On June 7th, the Awards Ceremony was held in London, with representatives of our key partners attending alongside the team from Bradford Teaching Hospitals.
During the Ceremony, the team was delighted to be announced as winners of the category and were presented with a trophy and certificate.
Lorraine Cameron, Head of Equality and Diversity and Business Liaison for the project said: “We are utterly delighted to win this award for this fabulous project. The hospital has developed a great partnership with Southfield school, Hft and a number of large and small local businesses who have helped us turn interns in to employees”.
The judging panel for the award was also full of praise, commenting: “This trail-blazing project showed clear benefits over time and strong communications. The team is passionate about individual stories”.
A big thank you to all of the partners involved in Project SEARCH Bradford, find out more about them here, and well done to Bradford Teaching Hospitals!
