Staff from the senior health team at St George’s Hospital met Mayor of London Boris Johnson at an event recognising the outstanding work and achievements of members of the community.
The team were invited to the reception at London’s City Hall On Wednesday after the Mayor’s office received a letter praising staff in senior health for their excellent care of a patient at the hospital.

Stephen Wood, principal physiotherapist in senior health at St George's, said: "The evening was a huge success and gave the staff full recognition for their dedication to patient dignity and care.
"Boris kindly spoke to us and was very keen to hear about our senior health initiatives and aspirations for the trust.
