NHS CCG Star Awards & AGM 2016


NHS Crawley and NHS Horsham and Mid Sussex Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) hosted their annual general meeting and Star Awards 2016 on 23 June at The Felbridge Hotel, East Grinstead - celebrating the achievements of staff, volunteers, members and partners who have gone above and beyond the call of duty.

Special guest, Commonwealth Games medallist, Jade Lally, from Horsham presented the Star Awards. Jade said: “The AGM and Star Awards event was a positive experience for me to see. It’s important not just to praise people, but to keep the general public informed about what is happening to improve NHS services and that things are being actioned.”

This year’s awards were hand-crafted and kindly donated by Amberley Museum and Heritage Centre. Watch the video of them being made (above).
