The RD&E has been named as one of the 40 best-performing Trusts in England at an awards ceremony.

Suzanne said: “We are delighted to receive this award and proud that the talent, hard work and dedication of all RD&E staff to provide our patients with the best possible care has been recognised.”

The awards were attended by over 200 guests including leaders from across the healthcare sector including: NHS England, Monitor, the Trust Development Authority and acute trusts.
