Council of Governors Quality Awards
The Council of Governors Quality Awards recognise the contributions that individuals and teams of staff make to improving the quality of patient care.
They are sponsored by our Foundation Trust Governors—elected representatives of patients, members of the public and staff—to demonstrate the importance that the Governors place on rewarding the commitment of staff to quality.
The awards, which are held throughout the year, are publicised to all Trust staff to encourage them to submit entries for consideration with team winners receiving a prize worth £250 and individual staff winners receiving a prize worth £100. Self-nominations and nominations of staff by colleagues are welcomed.
Since the winners of the first round of Quality Awards were announced in March 2011, a wide range of initiatives to improve quality have been recognised.
