Our Eddie nominated for top honour

A CPFT staff member who works at one of the mental health inpatient wards is in the running for a top honour.

Eduardo Morgado, activities co-ordinator at the Recovery Ward at the Cavell Centre in Peterborough, has been nominated in the BBC Radio Cambridgeshire Make A Difference Awards.

The awards recognise individuals or groups who make life better for people in their communities.

Eddie, as he is known by colleagues, was nominated by a former service user who said in their submission to the judges: “Eddie has helped me and so many others at the psychiatric hospital and in this community.
"He is selfless and caring and has so much compassion - never thinks of himself, always others. He's literally saved my life, and many others.”

Delighted Eddie, pictured with colleagues at the Recovery Ward, who has worked for CPFT since 2008 and the NHS for 21 years, said: “It’s a real privilege to have been nominated, especially by a service user. When you come to work, you just try to do the best you can.”

He will find out if he’s been shortlisted in the awards in the weeks ahead and, if successful, will be invited to the Make A Difference Awards ceremony in September. 

The Recovery Ward, staffed by a multi-discplinary team, cares for those with acute mental health issues.

Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust employs more than 4,700 people and provides mental health care for adults and children, integrated physical health care for older people and those with long-term conditions, children's health services in Peterborough, social care and learning disability services. The Trust is also renowned for its research work.
