Reps gain recognition at CSP awards ceremony

18 November 2014 - 12:57pm

Warren Sheehan’s ‘tireless’ work as a steward at Oxford University Hospitals NHS trust was recognised when he picked up the CSP ‘rep of the year’ award at a ceremony in central London yesterday.

As well as praising his stamina, the CSP members who nominated the Australia-born Mr Sheehan also referred to the ‘selfless’ way in which he goes about supporting them. In addition to defending members’ rights at work, Mr Sheehan has taken a key role in negotiations over extended hours working. ‘A lot of work goes unseen, so this award means a lot,’ he said.

Two stewards were highly commended in the category: Martin Hamilton, from St Mary’s hospital on the Isle of Wight, and David Hopper, from Freeman hospital, Newcastle upon Tyne.

Julie Knight, who has clocked up seven years as a health and safety rep at Aneurin Bevin University health board, was named safety rep of the year. She told Frontline: ‘I feel completely honoured to be recognised for the hard work we carry out.’

The efforts of Brighton University masters student Daniel Toms in supporting his fellow students won him the student rep of the year award. ‘It means a lot to me to be recognised in this way,’ he said.
