60,000 members from across the region were invited to nominate colleagues who had made a real difference in the delivery of healthcare. The awards form part of the region’s celebration of Black History Month in October.
The three winners are:
- Bernice Boore, Lead Nurse for Integrated Medicine at the Royal Berkshire Hospital, Reading.
- Ferdinand Bravo, a Practice Development Nurse at Brighton and Sussex NHS Trust
- Molly Chibvuri, a Sister at Stoke Mandeville Hospital, Buckinghamshire
Cess Wigley, Black History Month Lead Coordinator in the region, said: “We were delighted to receive so many rich nominations for this award but these three really stood out for us. The way they advocate for colleagues and are willing to use their voice for good is inspiring.
“We would love to be able to celebrate their success more widely, but with COVID-19 the risk is too high. Instead we will be honouring them during our month-long Black History Month celebrations that are taking place across October.”
