Nominations are now closed. 

The Star Awards are an annual reward and recognition scheme that have been designed to recognise teams and individuals, both clinical and non-clinical, who truly go beyond their call of duty and are passionate about providing the best possible service to people we care for.    

Please note the Patients and People First Award is nominated by the public and the other awards are nominated internally by colleagues across the Trust.

  Please note: Closing date 6 March 2020

Patients and People First Award 

This award gives the people we support the opportunity to nominate and publicly recognise outstanding care and treatment given to them or someone they care for. 

We deliver care which is tailored around the unique requirements of individuals and is constantly evolving around their changing expectations.  Based on our values, this award is for an individual or team who embodies 'putting people and patients first' in all that they do.

Can you think of a individual or team who have gone above and beyond to provide outstanding care or treatment to you or someone you care for?
