Staff awards are an important part of life at our Trust. Throughout the year, we ask staff to nominate their colleagues that provide brilliant care to patients and go the extra mile for their teams. In this way, we can all collectively congratulate our co-workers for the brilliant work they do.
Healthcare Hero Award
There is one award that is open to nominations from patients, carers and the public, the Healthcare Hero Award. We welcome nominations all year round, for staff members that 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, nominate them for the Healthcare Hero award. It’s quick and easy to enter, just fill in the nomination form, or email us on firstname.lastname@example.org to tell us why they deserve recognition.
Every year, we hold a staff awards event, celebrating the outstanding work of our colleagues. Inspiring stories of great care and teamwork are shared from all around the Trust. It’s also a great time to catch up with friends, and make some new ones!
The awards are supported by the generosity of our sponsors, thank you to:
Abbey Travel, Capsticks, CIS Security, G4S, ISS Facilities, Meridian, Omni, Ravensbourne, ResourceBank, Tusker and Vinci.
