Everyday heroes from across the NHS in Haringey were recently honoured for their long-standing dedication at an awards ceremony held by the Royal College of General Practitioners.

Bringing together NHS staff, patients and the public, the event titled ‘A Celebration of Collaboration - NHS 70 years in North Central and East London’ recognised the commitment of the unsung heroes of the NHS, with many staff having dedicated much of their lives to the health service.

NHS Haringey Clinical Commissioning Group would like to congratulate the following staff who received the ‘Contribution to the NHS’ award for their outstanding commitment to healthcare: 

  • Dr Joanna Haas, GP, Bridge House Medical Practice
  • Denise Cook, Receptionist, The High Road Surgery
  • Dr Jacqueline Mansfield, GP, Bounds Green Health Centre

Dr Joanna Haas (pictured above, centre right) has over 37 years’ NHS experience, spending 23 of those years working as a GP at Bridge House Medical Practice in Haringey and as a teacher of medical students at the Royal Free Hospital and University College London Hospital. Reflecting on her career and the awards, Joanna said: ‘It was very nice to have long service recognised and good that not only doctors but other long-serving NHS staff were being similarly rewarded.’
