An award for making an outstanding contribution to Driffield hospital services was presented to the staff who worked on the hospital’s Community Ward.
The Jack Duck Award was created in memory of the chairman of the Hospital Defence League and is presented every year to those who have gone beyond the call of duty in their service to Alfred Bean Hospital. Barbara Hall, chairman of the Driffield and District Health Defence Group, which was founded in 1983, presented the award to the community ward staff.
Karen Gordon-Russell said “The staff felt very honoured and humble to receive the award. They all felt very privileged to have worked at Alfred Bean and all will treasure the times spent working in a much loved and supportive place of work”.
Barbara Hall said “It’s nice to be able to do something for the staff who’ve done so much for the hospital and to recognise their contribution to the work that’s been done here over the years.”
