The Spirit of Salford is an award series, managed by Salford City Council, that celebrates the good news stories, talents, skills and kindness of Salford’s diverse, passionate and amazing city.
At our recent Haelo Hosts ’15 conference, we were lucky enough to highlight three amazing people who are working in Salford to make the lives of others better.
Julie Flaherty, Nurse Consultant at Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust, was one of the first NHS staff who volunteered to help provide vital medical care to people with ebola in Sierra Leonne.
Dr Jeremy Tankel, GP at Clarendon Surgery and his team in Salford had real problems with the access they provided to patients was impacting on the level of service they provided. You can see the full story here.
Dave Pike, part of a team of Salford firefighters who experienced anti-social behaviour on their own doorstep but didn’t leave it to someone else to solve, they set out trying to help get to the cause of the problems. You can see the full story here.
Speaking at the recent Haelo Hosts conference, Salford City Mayor, Ian Stewart, said: When people go the extra mile we should say thank you. The Spirit of Salford awards are recognition of this; they recognise the people in our city who have done this. Well done to Julie.”
