The annual MyPorter Awards, in support of Porters and Portering Teams within healthcare, will this year be backed by ISS, a leading workplace experience and facility management company which provides placemaking solutions that contribute to better business performance and makes life easier, more productive and enjoyable – delivered to high standards by people who care.
The awards, launched back in 2020 and now in it’s fourth year, aims to shine a spotlight on the great work portering teams do day in, day out, with last years’ winning team featured on Sky News’ Kay Burley Show – raising the profile of a sometimes thankless profession.
The day isn’t all about the glitz of an awards ceremony, with the full event in association with NHS England seeing a live conference, allowing those in attendance to learn about important topics and advances within portering from a plethora of guests and sources, giving them the opportunity to take that knowledge back to their own Trusts. There is also a live panel, so guests can raise questions and queries to those key decision makers and those who have been carefully selected to share best practice. The MyPorter Awards is a day of education and celebration.
Donna Brown, MD for Healthcare at ISS, said: “At ISS, we know how integral our hospital porters are to the flow and function of the NHS hospitals we serve. They have a direct, positive impact on the hospital’s successful performance, and play a critical part in shaping patient experience as a welcoming face at both the start and end of a hospital visit. That’s why I’m delighted that ISS is sponsoring the MyPorter Awards, recognising excellence among porters across the country and celebrating the work they do to keep our health service running smoothly.”
