Recognising Success Awards 2014

Do you know a member of staff or a team who deserve an extra special thank you for going above and beyond the call of duty?

We are looking for nominations for our annual 'Recognising Success' Staff Awards to give something back to those employees who have gone that extra mile to help others.

By nominating teams or individuals who really demonstrate excellence in what they do, you can play your part in saying thank you to our amazing staff and volunteers.

All nominations will be considered by a panel of senior Trust staff and governors. Shortlisted nominees, along with their team/colleagues, will be invited to a special celebratory event, where the winners will be announced and presented with a special award.

The public categories for this year’s awards are:

Unsung Hero – The Darren Cartwright Award

This award is named in memory of a previous staff member Darren Cartwright, who sadly died last year. The Darren Cartwright Award

The Darren Cartwright Award is a new award that recognises an individual who always goes the extra mile and goes above and beyond what is normally expected, for the good of others. Someone who shows commitment and dedication to their work and has continually strived to improve the experiences of service users, carers or colleagues.

Frontline Team of the Year

This category is aimed at teams that have implemented innovation, change or service enhancement and, as a result of this work, have made improvements to the Safety, Quality or Effectiveness of frontline services.

Making a Difference Award

Recognises a service or individual that makes a real difference to service experience. This may be from a particularly moving patient story or compliment, or may be someone who regularly receives compliments on the small things they do that make a big difference to people’s lives and the care that we provide.
