In Bromley we recognise the contributions made by our staff working across health and care services. This is done in a number of ways and our staff can expect to work in an environment where diversity is valued and equality of opportunity is promoted. Each of our individual partners have their own events and ways to reward and recognise their staff. We also jointly recognise our staff from across the system in a variety of ways, such as our ‘One Bromley Celebrating Integration Together Awards’ in 2022, which focused on celebrating integrated work across more than one health and care organisation in Bromley.

We are very proud that some of our integrated services have won national awards. This includes a Municipal Journal Achievement award in 2021 and an NHS innovate award in 2022.

At the most recent One Bromley Celebration Awards Event, staff were recognised for their commitment, resilience, and everything they do on a day-to-day basis for Bromley residents. Read more about the awards.

Integrating acute and community health and care award

Winner – The high intensity user service run at the Princess Royal University Hospital which supports people using emergency services on a very regular basis who often don’t need health care, but who have underlying social problems.

The awards are a fantastic way to celebrate our workforce, from the award finalists to everyone working across Bromley services together to care for our residents. We were overwhelmed with the high number of good quality applications for the awards, which shows just how much our services are working collaboratively together. It was a very special evening, bringing together so many talented and committed people working across organisational boundaries with a common goal of providing the best care possible.
