Royal Berkshire Hospital’s ICU scoops national award

Staff at Royal Berkshire Hospital’s Intensive Care Unit have been recognised for their care in treating some of their sickest patients.

The ICU team won Trust of the Year at the national Intensive Care Society Awards, nominated by ICU sister Helen McCarthy.

She said: “It has been an immensely challenging few years.

“I’m humbled every time I walk onto the unit, at the dedication shown by every single member of the team caring for our patients.

“From housekeeping to consultants, they all put patient care front and centre.”

The Trust of the Year award also recognised the work that has been done to become an accredited University Department of Critical Care Medicine with Reading University.

This comes as a result of excellence in clinical outcomes, research and education and will mean the unit will receive additional support to excel in these areas.

Acting chief executive Janet Lippett said: “These awards are so well-deserved because they recognise what we know to be true.

“I know how hard all our staff across the Trust work, and how dedicated to patients they are, including the ICU Team.

“It is a reflection of the exceptional work that happens in our ICU and I couldn’t be more proud.”

Lead ICU nurses Rachel Crisford and Nicola Davies said: “We’re absolutely delighted to win these awards. It’s privilege to work and lead our team in ICU.

“Each and every day their dedication and passion shines through.”
