Calling all patients - name your health hero!
03 April 2017
York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust is once again appealing to the public to nominate a staff member or team who they feel deserves special recognition at its annual staff award ceremony.
Nominations for the Trust’s annual staff recognition awards – The Celebration of Achievement Awards – are open until Friday 12 May 2017.
For the fifth successive year patients and families are invited to nominate someone for ‘The Patient Award’ so they can say a public thank you to an outstanding staff member or team.
The award will be presented to an individual or team who has shown an exceptionally caring, supportive and compassionate service to patients, their families and friends.
Patrick Crowley, Chief Executive at York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, said: “The Celebration of Achievement Staff Recognition Awards have become a valuable and highly regarded way of honouring colleagues who have excelled in their achievements and service for the Trust and to the patients, families and clients we serve.
“I can’t tell you the tremendous sense of pride that I have when listening to stories of outstanding patient care and innovative suggestions from staff, and in the current climate it has never been more important to share, celebrate and recognise the excellent work of the NHS.
“Last year’s event was filled with truly inspirational stories of patient care and innovation and gave everyone a small insight into the diversity of skills, expertise and contributions that people make every day in our Trust."
Last year’s Patient Award was awarded to Helen Lickley, A Healthcare assistant on one of our busiest wards who was fortunate enough to receive two nominations for her brilliant efforts in making the hospital experience as comfortable as possible for patients.
Nominations can be made online by clicking here. If your nominee is chosen as a finalist you will receive an invitation to attend the event.
This year’s Celebration of Achievement Awards Ceremony will be held at Bridlington Spa in October.
