The chief executive of King’s Lynn’s Queen Elizabeth Hospital has won a regional award.
Alice Webster was named a Healthwatch Hero by Healthwatch Norfolk.
She was given the award for her efforts, and those of her team, working with the organisation which gathers the views of patients.
This included a project improving communication with different West Norfolk communities including young people, and the first Three Hospitals Three Weeks event which saw the whole Healthwatch Norfolk team spend a week talking to patients in wards, clinics, and A and E.

The awards were presented at the Healthwatch Norfolk Live which recapped the organisation’s work over the last 12 months and saw health and care leaders take audience questions.
Judith Sharpe, deputy chief executive of Healthwatch Norfolk, said: “This event is our opportunity each year to tell people about 12 months of work and assemble a range of health and care leaders all in one place to hear people’s concerns.
“Communication about the range of help that is available and how to access it was a theme of the discussions.
“It was also a great opportunity to thank the many people we have worked with during our first decade and by presenting awards to those who have had a special impact in helping us to listen to the concerns and suggestions of people. We look forward to another ten years of helping to shape the services that people need in Norfolk.”
