Appreciating hardwork is one of the ways of encouraging excellence. This was exemplified when the management of the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH) held an award day in recognition of staff who attained Fellowships and won awards in the Part One and Two Fellowship examinations 2021 from the Medical Post Graduate Colleges, on Friday, July 30th, 2021.
The Chief Medical Director, Prof. Adetokunbo Fabamwo in his speech, said the idea of giving awards to health workers is to appreciate the feats achieved in being the best in their fields and by extension, doing the hospital proud. He promised that this recognition will be on a regular basis for all professionals in the hospital. Prof. Fabamwo congratulated the recipients and encouraged them to work harder to reach the apex of their careers.
The Director of Clinical Services and Training, Dr. Adebowale Adekoya, in the same vein congratulated the awardees and noted that staff welfare is a priority for the management of the hospital and this is one of the many ways by which deserving staff will be recognized going forward.
