Outstanding Achievement Award winner: Dr Anne Robinson

This year’s Outstanding Achievement Award was presented to Warrington and Halton Teaching Hospitals’ Consultant in Emergency Medicine and Deputy Medical Director Dr Anne Robinson.

Chosen each year by the Trust’s Chief Executive Simon Constable, the special award is given to a colleague that has made an exceptional contribution to the organisation as a whole.

Dr Robinson has a long list of accomplishments, with an NHS career spanning more than 40 years. In 1992 she undertook her first emergency medicine role at Warrington and Halton Teaching Hospitals (WHH) as a trainee, subsequently becoming a consultant in emergency medicine in March 1996. She has since dedicated 28 years to the role. 

As well as helping to lead the Emergency Department, she has been instrumental in the delivery of many care innovations and has worked tirelessly to improve patient safety. 

Simon said: “With around 5,000 people working and volunteering at Warrington and Halton Teaching Hospitals, having to choose just one deserving recipient is hugely challenging to say the least. This year however one person did come to mind straightaway. 

“Anne’s contribution to the Trust has been significant and impressive. Over the years she has driven improvements both within her department and beyond, delivering high quality and compassionate care, and supporting significant advances in patient safety across the Trust, including major safety improvements in medication prescribing and administration, urological surgery, and trauma management.

“She has always had a real passion for improving the working lives of staff and has also been an inspirational coach and mentor, helping so many colleagues reach their potential.

“I’m delighted to be able to present this well-deserved award to Anne ahead of her retirement later this year.”

Away from WHH, Dr Robinson has dedicated time to volunteering as an emergency doctor, including working in the athletes’ village at the 2022 Commonwealth Games.

She said: “My career at WHH spans 31 years, and this award recognises not me but the teams I have worked with over those years to improve patient care and safety and also the working lives of all staff. 

“The improvement works started in the Emergency Department but have touched upon and involved every Trust department, particularly in the past 12 years.

“I work at WHH and WHH is also my local hospital. I am immensely proud of the work our staff do and have no hesitation in bringing any member of my family to be treated here.”
