Congratulations to our own Janet Flaherty who was given a surprise honour at the ELFT Staff Awards held last week (21 October).
Janet, Account Director for On The Level PR, played a key role in organising the awards ceremony in partnership with ELFT’s People & Culture Directorate.
When asked about being recognised with the honour, Janet said:
“It was a lovely gesture and something I wasn’t expecting. It’s always a pleasure to work with ELFT to deliver their awards ceremony. It’s a great time to celebrate the achievements of staff – especially during the recent troubling times.”
On presenting Janet with the award, the Trust’s Chief Medical Officer, Dr Paul Gilluley said:
“Janet is so much part of the ELFT family that if she was a stick of rock she would have ELFT running all the way through her. As always, you give Janet a project and she pulls it off – even whilst doing one hundred other projects at the same time!”
The ELFT awards was the first award ceremony held since the outbreak of COVID -19. Held at the historic Troxy in East London, covid protocols were put in place such as lateral flow testing and the encouragement for guest to wear masks throughout the ceremony.
The event brought staff, service users, MPs, and health care leaders from across the region together for one evening to thank and applaud ELFT staff for their hard work.
