Another award for the St. Mark’s Hospital Pouch nurse team!

We are delighted to announce that Petya Marinova – Lead Nurse Pouch and Stoma Care, was presented with the Healthcare Honours, New Talent Award, 2023. The awards ceremony was held at the Houses of Parliament on Thursday evening, 23rd November, showcasing NHS leadership and management roles. 

The New Talent award shortlisted individuals with up to 5 years of experience in a leadership or managerial position who had shown remarkable potential as a leader and made outstanding contributions to their organisation, either on their own projects or in support of colleagues and/or more senior leaders. The nominee could be in a clinical or non-clinical leadership role, which provided some stiff competition but Petya claimed the prize for us all. We are so proud of her.

The Stoma/Pouch Management Team – Zarah Perry-Woodford and Petya Marinova were also shortlisted and Highly Commended for the Improving Outcomes: Management Team Award which highlighted an NHS management team, from any specialism or area, that made active improvements with a demonstrable impact on outcomes within (or even beyond) their area of responsibility.

They were also shortlisted for the Nursing Times Workforce Summit 2023,  Best Use of Workplace Technology but sadly we didn’t get gold this time!
