Staff from the trust’s hospitals donned their gladrags while Eastender Michelle Collins was on hand to hand out awards.

The soap star also used the opportunity to thank staff at Royal Free Hospital for the care they had shown her mother, who has been ill over the past year.

She said: “I am very proud of our NHS so when I was asked to take part in tonight I of course said yes”.

More than thirty staff members received gongs.
