Nominee's story :
CTASU have shown great resilience and compassion throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. The whole team pulled together to provide a different kind of service to what they normally provide. The team did longer hours in the week and worked every weekend to ensure essential COVID medicines were prepared and delivered to ICU. This helped the nursing teams as it meant they could spend less time preparing drugs when fully gowned on the COVID ward and more time caring for their patients. This was a huge change for CTASU which they quickly turned around in order to be able to help. It was also a huge increase in workload, going from around 20 doses per day to preparing 500 syringes per day, plus continuing to make any clinical trial doses that continued. Throughout this, CTASU also supported the vaccine hub as well.
The team have worked extremely hard, they have all put in extra shifts and have kept each other going when times have been really hard. They are a fantastic team and deserve to be recognised for their achievements over the past year.
