The rheumatology department at Queen Alexandra Hospital, in Cosham, held the annual event to look at what they have achieved in the past year and what improvements they can make.

The staff also presented a cheque of £337 to Partners and Friends Through Pain.

Colin Beevor, matron and service manager, said: '˜Sometimes we forget to acknowledge what we achieve over a period of time. Our working days are busy and therefore we often forget to celebrate individual staff members and department successes.
