The team were nominated by Pauline Jones, who works in the Radiology Department at Conquest Hospital who said: “The porters at Conquest work hard to ensure our patients are moved around the hospital in a timely order, they work under extreme pressure, always helpful and with a smile.”

Trust Chairman, Steve Phoenix presented the team with a certificate and chocolates.

The ‘Hero of the Month’ awards recognises the great work of colleagues who demonstrate how East Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust values are lived out as part of everyday working life.

Each month, members of staff nominate their colleagues for this award. Eight Divisional heroes of the month are then selected by divisional leads, and these nominations go forward to be selected as the overall Trust ‘Hero of the Month’ by the Trust Executive.
