Fenland psychologist misses out on top NHS leadership award in London

A FENLAND psychologist has finished as runner up in a top award at prestigious national ceremony in London this week.

Martin Hall, a supervisor and mentor for Fenland Primary Care Psychology Health Service, was nominated for Mentor of the Year, which honours people with a reputation for being a committed and sought after mentor, at the ceremony in the Great Hall at St Bartholomew’s Hospital, on Wednesday night.

He started working as a senior psychologist at Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust (CPFT) two years ago, and as well as his clinical duties, he supervises several teams, including trainee psychologists from the University of East Anglia.

Jenny Raine, chief executive for CPFT, said: “We are very proud and fortunate to have talented people like Martin working with us. We are delighted his hard work was honoured by being shortlisted for an NHS Leadership award.”

Jessita O’Connor, one of Martin’s colleagues, added: “It’s largely due to Martin’s style of leadership and support for others that Fenland is such a formidable team. We have strong opinions and personalities and it is testament to his ability to lead and mentor that we remain cohesive, supportive and innovative.”
