Warm smiles to end a freezing week

The smiles say it all - Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust’s Operational Estates and Facilities team have won their second hotly contested award for their Hospital Energy Project.

The Hospital Business Awards, sponsored by ISS UK, were held in London on Thursday 14 December 2017 and are widely recognised as one of the leading healthcare events of the year.

They were hosted this year by physician/comedian and radio host, Dr Phil Hammond, who paid tribute to unseen and unsung work that is done behind the scenes enabling the doctors, nurses and healthcare providers to do their jobs.

Collecting the Estates and Facilities Innovation Award on behalf of the Trust, Claire Hennessy, Head of Operational Estates and Facilities Mangement, said: "It was very apt to win this award at the end of an extremely cold week, when everything has been flat out but, for the first time in years, none of us was worried about a failure in the boiler houses.

"The OUH Estates and Facilities team and Vital Energi are delighted to see their peer group recognising our vision and hard work, and this award is the perfect end to a difficult week!"
