The RNOH is among 12 London employers that have been awarded Silver Awards on the MOD’s Employer Recognition Scheme. The scheme, now in its 5th year, encourages employers to support defence and inspire other organisations to do the same. The RNOH’s Silver Award was given because we have actively demonstrated our commitment to support Armed Forces personnel, their families and veterans. The winners will be presented with their awards at a ceremony on 26 November at the RAF Museum.
Rob Hurd, Chief Executive of the RNOH said: "We’re delighted to receive this award. The RNOH has always strived to deliver the very best patient care and staff experience and this Silver Award demonstrates that we are achieving a level of employer satisfaction that is of the highest standards, supporting armed forces reservists working here alongside frontline personnel. This complements the care we deliver to veterans, a situation that will improve further once we open Princess Eugenie House and the veterans rehabilitation unit in 2021."
Commenting on the announcement of the 2018 Employer Recognition Scheme Silver Awards, Minister for Defence Personnel and Veterans, the Rt Hon Tobias Ellwood MP, said: "I am delighted to congratulate the recipients of this year’s Employer Recognition Scheme Silver awards. A Silver award recognises the fantastic efforts of employers throughout the UK who have both elevated their commitments under the Armed Forces Covenant and provided actual benefit to the Armed Forces Community. The winners should all be proud of the life-changing impact and fresh opportunities they are providing to our Reservists, veterans, wounded injured and sick and their families. We’ve seen a record number of winners this year, which shows that the Armed Forces family talent pool is also providing tangible business benefit."
