Staff awards

Employee and Team of the Month awards

The Trust gives a monthly award to one employee and one team, from within our organisation, to recognise outstanding effort, commitment and professionalism.

Anyone, from patients and their families to other healthcare professionals, can nominate a member of our staff or an entire team, simply by sending an email to with a brief outline of who you would like to put forward and why.

The nominations are then considered by our Executive Team and certificates are presented to the winners each month.

Members of our staff do amazing things every day so please get nominating!

Staff Stars Awards

Each year the Trust holds an awards ceremony to celebrate those members of staff and teams who have gone the extra mile in providing the best possible care for our patients.

We welcome nominations from our patients and their families, who want the chance to thank and recognise individuals and teams for their commitment, professionalism and dedication. Nominations normally open in August and close in October – we will let you know here when nominations open for the next annual awards.
