Award celebrating NHS workers from BHAFC

The incredible efforts of the NHS and key workers over the past few months, has been celebrated with a Sarah Watts Inspiration Award from Brighton and Hove Albion Football Club (BHAFC).

Watch Dr Rob Galloway, BSUH A&E consultant and BHAFC matchday doctor, sharing why BSUH staff are so deserving of this award, including navigating tough working conditions to keep patients in Sussex safe and healthy.

As secretary of Brighton and Hove Albion Supporters’ Club (BHASC) and involved with the club since 1983, Sarah Watts played a leading role in the club’s work to tackle homophobia against fans. The award was created after her death in 2015, to recognise inspiring people in the community.

Previous winners include Noah Gofur, a seven-year-old child who called the police when his mum collapsed at home, and former Brighton and Hove Albion skipper Bruno Salter, for his inspirational leadership.

Speaking about the award, BSUH Chief Executive Marianne Griffiths said: “A big congratulations to all our staff and NHS colleagues in Sussex on this fantastic award. The way in which you have pulled together in these exceptional times to provide outstanding care for everyone who has needed us, makes me incredibly proud to work alongside you.”
