Congratulations to all the Moorfields' Stars of 2018 finalists and winners that were recognised yesterday at the Moorfields' Stars of 2018 award ceremony at Gibson Hall. It was fantastic to celebrate the achievements of colleagues from across the UK and the United Arab Emirates, and hear inspiring stories of patient care, dedication and commitment to The Moorfields Way values: caring, excellent, inclusive and organised.
Moorfields Eye Charity sponsored the event for the third year running and two competitive categories recognised caring and talented colleagues whose invaluable support helps the charity to raise funds to invest in innovative research, education and patient care that changes people's lives.
Reflecting on the event and the winners of the Moorfields Eye Charity champion and Moorfields Eye Charity award for innovation and service improvement, Robert Dufton, chief executive of Moorfields Eye Charity, said:
“Moorfields Eye Charity is proud to sponsor Moorfields’ Stars - celebrating the qualities which define staff and volunteers at the trust and the Institute of Ophthalmology, the people who make it an outstanding place for eye care, pioneering research and a training ground for future talent.
Congratulations to everyone who won an award or was shortlisted. It is down to the dedication of staff that we’re able to have an impact on the lives of patients here and around the world.”
