Patients are being encouraged to nominate caring staff for a top accolade at a West Midlands healthcare Trust’s annual glittering awards ceremony.
The Star Awards recognises some of the best healthcare professionals at Sandwell and West Birmingham NHS Trust, which runs City, Sandwell and Rowley Regis Hospitals, as well as three GP surgeries and Leasowes Intermediate Care Centre.
Patients are able to nominate employees they think have gone that extra mile for the Quality of Care award.
Raffaela Goodby, Director of People and Organisation Development, said: “I’m urging all patients to nominate someone who they think has offered them great quality of care whilst they or their family have been treated at our Trust.
“This could be in the community or at any of our hospital sites. It could be somebody who made you feel welcome and took time to listen to you whilst in our care, to an employee who showed real compassion and care towards you.”
The Trust is a real advocate of rewarding its employees for their fantastic work which is why the award was introduced. It is one of 20 categories, which include Employee of the Year, Digital Leader of the Year and the Prize for Innovation.
The event is fully funded by sponsors.
Raffaela added: “Staff at our Trust work extremely hard every day of the week and this event aims to shine the spotlight on those who truly deserve it.”
Nominations close on Friday, 28 June. The winner will be presented with their award at the ceremony on Friday 11 October at Aston Villa Football Club.
