Staff Awards

2017 nominations now open

We’re delighted to launch our flagship annual staff awards where we recognise and celebrate the very best examples of our teams going the extra mile to care for our patients.

We want as many nominations as possible. If you’ve personally received excellent care from a member of our team, or are a colleague who has received a fantastic service from a member of staff, we want to hear from you. Every nomination we receive will be reviewed by our leadership team—each will go a long way in helping us to acknowledge the commitment and hard work of individuals and teams who work tirelessly every day to provide patients with the good care and experience they deserve.

Nominations close at 9am on Monday 14 August.
