Remarkable awards donated for Critical Care staff

Generous local company donate awards to celebrate dedication of staff

Local business donates awards as recognition for critical care staff

Poole Hospital’s critical care unit have received custom made awards from local business Laser Crystal to recognise and celebrate the array of staff who supported critical care during the initial wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, with each award being engraved with the recipients name.

The stunning engraved crystal award reads “Thank you for your hard work, outstanding courage and smiles throughout the COVID-19 Pandemic 2020”

Laser Crystal who are based in Poole, designed and kindly donated the awards for each member of staff to recognise their hard work and loyalty and the staff have been extremely touched by this generosity.


As part of Poole Hospital’s response to the initial wave of the COVID-19 pandemic many staff from around the Trust were redeployed to work alongside us in Critical Care. Everyone pulled together, from our wonderful cleaners, nurses, therapists, pharmacy and medical staff, with a remarkable level of courage, professionalism and dedication whilst showing great compassion for our patients and each other. As a senior team we are incredibly proud and grateful for everyone’s contribution and following a kind donation from Laser Crystal we have been able to present many of those staff with an award to say thank you

“It’s been our pleasure to create these fabulous Rainbow Awards to celebrate the dedication and courage of the amazing ICU team at Poole Hospital. Over 250 awards have been presented to the ICU team recognising our COVID heroes from nurses, doctors to cleaners we owe them a huge debt of gratitude. Here at Laser Crystal we wanted to show our appreciation and donating some crystal awards featuring individual’s names was our way of saying thank you”
