Nominate your hospital heroes!
The trust launched the Thank You Awards five years ago to help recognise some of the work that goes on from staff across Warrington Hospital and Halton General Hospital each day. Local people access over 500,000 appointments, operations and procedures each year provided by the hospital’s 4,000 staff.
The awards are about sharing best practice across the hospitals and giving the public a chance to say thank you to staff. Last year’s winners included nurses, doctors and entire wards and department teams at both hospitals – as well as some of the unsung heroes behind the scenes including domestic and supplies staff. The trust has now launched the 2013 awards and nominations are open. Panels that include the hospitals’ elected public governors judge the nominations that come in and the top three nominees in each category go forward to a staff awards event in June where the winners are announced.
Mel Pickup, chief executive at Warrington and Halton hospitals, said:
“We want to give patients and visitors the chance to nominate staff, teams or even entire services that have made a special difference to them and their families. All they need to do is tell us a bit about why the staff they want to nominate deserve an extra special thank you. Last year there were some incredibly moving stories of care, compassion and support which show the pride that local patients have in their health service.”
All people need to do is to write a bit of information on why the staff or teams they wish to nominate should win an award. If you're not sure of a staff members' name, don't worry, just give as much information as you can. The more detial you can give on why someone should win, the better the chance of your nominee winning.
You can submit your nomination easily by using a simple on-line form on the trust’s website at www.warringtonandhaltonhospitals.nhs.uk/awards-nominate.asp
Alternatively, you can email your nominations to firstname.lastname@example.org or by post to Membership Office, Warrington Hospital, WA5 1QG. Clearly state your name, your contact details, the name of the staff member or team you wish to nominate and why you think they should win.
The closing date for all nominations is 14th May.
