Team QEH Awards 2021

Team QEH Awards 2021

We announced our 2021 Team QEH Awards winners at a special annual awards evening on 17 March 2022 to celebrate the amazing work of our staff and volunteers.

Our awards evening held an extra special meaning after the last few years Ė everyone at Team QEH has worked so hard, consistently going above and beyond in exceptionally challenging circumstances during the pandemic to provide the best possible care for our patients.

Originally planned to be held in person, the difficult decision was taken to move the event online and hold a virtual awards ceremony in response to a significant increase in COVID cases in Kingís Lynn and West Norfolk. You can watch the recording below.
