Staff Awards

Staff Award winners from 2020 pose with their awards

Staff awards are an important part of life at our Trust. Throughout the year, we ask staff, patients and their loved ones to nominate teams or individuals that work at our Trust for providing:

  • Brilliant care to patients and supporting their loved one
  • Fantastic work behind the scenes in our support services
  • Going the extra mile for their colleagues or other teams.

In this way, we can collectively congratulate our co-workers for the fantastic work they do. Every month we select an individual or team to be our Employee(s) of the Month.

Help us reward great care

We particularly encourage patients and carers to let us know when you’ve had great care from staff, who have demonstrated our values and have gone above and beyond for their patients, their relative or carer, and who are great to work with. We welcome nominations all year round, for staff members or teams who have made a real difference to the lives of local people. 

If you would like to nominate a member of staff or a team for providing fantastic care, please take a few minutes to fill in a quick nomination form to tell us about the great work of the individual or team. nominate them for an award.

Share your story

We love to share stories about great care in our Trust publications and online. These stories about the difference our healthcare has made to people’s lives, really help our staff to feel appreciated and be proud of their hard work. 

If you would be happy to share a few more details about your positive experience and for your story to be shared, please email us on and put positive story in the subject line.

Annual Staff Awards

In addition to our Employee of the Month programme, we also run annual Staff Awards. We celebrate the outstanding work of our colleagues and share inspiring stories of great care and teamwork from all around the Trust.
