A hospital in Bushey has won an award, which according to the hospital director is the result of the "hard work and dedication" of staff.

Spire Healthcare, which is the parent company for Spire Bushey Hospital, was named Hospital Group of the Year at the 2014 HealthInvestor Awards.

The event is one of the main events for the health sector.

Melvin Robson, director for Spire Bushey Hospital said: "We are delighted to be a part of the Hospital Group of the Year.

"We are pleased the judges recognised the investments made in the company and the hard work and dedication everyone at Spire Healthcare gives to providing high quality patient care."

The Times columnist Matthew Parris presented the awards, which were judged by a panel of 21 independent judges.
