Congratulations to Daniele and Mahamadou, Oct/Nov's Mildmay MVPs!

Daniele and Mahamadou receive their MVP prizes from Mildmay CEO Geoff ColemanDaniele and Mahamadou receive their MVP prizes from Mildmay CEO Geoff Coleman

And the winner of the (joint) MVP Award for October / November 2023 is….. Dr Daniele Parker, Mildmay's Principal Clinical Psychologist, and Mahamadou Trawally Bajaha from our hard-working Estates and Facilities Team! A CEO-shaped handshake & Amazon voucher are part of the ritual!

Here’s why we voted for them as Mildmay MVP:


  • Daniele has supported staff during difficult encounters. Takes time to listen and come up with a way forward.

  • A very hard-working senior professional who provides vital and sometimes overlooked psychological support to both patients and staff


  • Always working away in the background, trying not to be seen but is constantly working away to keep the unit clean and up to scratch.

Mildmay's bi-monthly MVP Awards were devised by one of our physiotherapists, Josh Pedro, who recognised that in addition to the annual staff awards by our Trustees, our resilient, dedicated and hard-working staff deserved a fun way to support each other and recognise excellence in their colleagues.


This award aims to recognise the amazing things that Mildmay staff do daily, which may otherwise fly under the radar. By bringing this to the forefront, we can impart regular goodwill and warm, fuzzy feelings into the workplace and give our staff the appreciation they deserve!


The Mildmay MVP Award is a bi-monthly, ‘people’s vote' type staff awards system. Candidates are nominated by and voted for by staff. No hierarchy!

Every couple of months, we ask for nominations for who our staff think has been the Mildmay MVP. You can nominate any member of staff (clinical, non-clinical, senior management, catering, finance, facilities, etc.) & this can be for anything big (saving someone’s life) or small (being really smiley every day).

Once the nominations are in, we can all vote for the winner in an online poll. Everyone sees the nominations, so even if they don’t ‘win’, hopefully, it feels nice to be recognised publicly.


The ubiquitous Amazon vouchers.


On social media and chat forums, MVP means "Most Valuable Player." In this context, the MVP is the player in a sports team whose individual performance is considered the most significant. MVPs can be chosen for their performance throughout a season or in a particular competition or game.
