Health cash plan provider Health Shield has shown its support for a South West Wales NHS trust for the 3rd year running.

Hywel Dda University Health Board is one of the largest NHS trusts in Wales providing care to over 370,000 people. Each year Hywel Dda holds a glittering ‘Best of Health’ awards ceremony where employees are recognised for their work commitment by going above and beyond their normal duties. For 2016, Health Shield sponsored the ‘Improving Health & Wellbeing’ award.

Health Shield chief executive Jonathan Burton said: ‘All of us here at Health Shield know what a great job everyone in the NHS does, so being given the opportunity to once again sponsor the Best of Health awards was an easy decision for us.

‘The awards evening represented a special night of celebration at which the extraordinary achievements of staff, volunteers and partners were recognised. Hywel Dda staff, along with all other NHS staff, do such tremendous work and I would like to offer my congratulations on behalf of us here at Health Shield to everyone who picked up an award on the night.’

The ceremony took place earlier this year on 21st January and the winner of the award sponsored by Health Shield was Transfer of Care Advice and Liaison Service (TOCALS). Coordinator of the event said: “On behalf of Hywel Dda I’d like to thank all organisations and local businesses who have once again made it possible for us to recognise and reward our fantastic staff, volunteers and partners with a wonderful ceremony.”
