Harrogate NHS staff win top health awards


Published by The Stray FM News Team at 7:01am 20th April 2019.

North Yorkshire NHS staff “over the moon” as they scoop top healthcare awards.

  • Two members of Harrogate and District NHS Foundation Trust staff are “over the moon” after winning at a national ceremony.
  • Phil Bremner provides welfare and benefits advice to cancer patients at The Sir Robert Ogden Macmillan Centre.

A man has won a top healthcare award for his work with cancer patients in Harrogate.

Phil Bremner provides welfare and benefits advice to people at The Sir Robert Ogden Macmillan Centre.

Phil picked up the Macmillan Award for Leadership and Innovation in Cancer Care for his work providing welfare and benefits advice to cancer patients at Harrogate District Hospital’s Sir Robert Ogden Macmillan Centre.

His post is one of only a handful of welfare and benefit services to be provided from a cancer centre itself.

On Phil’s nomination, the judges said:

“Phillip’s passion for his role was very evident in the quality of the service he provides, going the extra mile to ensure all his patients’ needs are met.”

Meanwhile, Lara Chapman won a Rising Star Award for her work as a Specialist Podiatrist with Harrogate and District NHS Foundation Trust and a Clinical Research Associate with the Leeds Institute of Rheumatic and Musculoskeletal Medicine (part of the University of Leeds).

The Advancing Healthcare Awards programme, which aims to cross boundaries and foster partnership, is open to allied health professionals (AHPs) and healthcare scientists as well as those who work alongside them in support roles.

Following the ceremony, both Lara and Phil declared that they were “delighted” and “over the moon” to have won.

Lara said:

“I’m absolutely delighted to have been awarded a Rising Star Award. To be recognised as a rising star on a national level and presented with my award by the College of Podiatry is fantastic!”

Phil said:

“The Sir Robert Ogden Macmillan Centre at Harrogate District Hospital is rare in the sense that we provide NHS welfare and benefits services on-site. The impact of the service has been incredibly beneficial to patients, with over £6 million pounds of annualised benefits having been successfully claimed for them – it’s brilliant that our work has been recognised on a national scale. I’m over the moon to have won.”
