Staff Awards 2019

Our people are our lifeblood - without their compassion, team work and dedication we couldn't deliver excellent high quality, safe and responsive care to our patients throughout Islington, Haringey and beyond.
 
Our annual awards ceremony recognises the difference our staff make to the lives of our patients and how they help us to be the best that we can be. Nominations are now open and we invite you to get involved and nominate a staff member or team who you believe should be recognised for their exceptional care and commitment.
Part of building a compassionate and inclusive culture means recognising those people who live our values day in, day out but also go the extra mile for the patients, their colleagues or anyone else. These awards are there to do this, to find the everyday heroes who help to make us an outstanding organisation which delivers high quality, safe and effective care for our patients. 
 
Patients and their families and friends can nominate today in the Patient Choice Category today until 2.00pm on 31 July:
  • Patient Choice Award
    If you or a relative have been treated by a member of our staff that you would like to say thank you to, you can nominate them for our special patient award. The patient award will be presented to the member of staff or team who you feel has made a clear difference to the care you receive. This can include improving customer service, increasing the quality of a service, changing how it is delivered or simply delivering great care. You can nominate by clicking here.

Tips for great nominations:

    • We are looking for the best of the best - don't play down their achievements!
    • Please provide evidence as to why the person you are nominating should get the award - ideally this will be measurable. Judges always have a really hard job deciding who should receive the award, so the nominations which have the strongest evidence will be successful.
    • You don't need to provide a very long submission, a short, succinct paragraph with strong evidence can be just as good as a long nomination.
    • Consider what we are looking for when you write your nomination - each category has a short description to help you with this.
    • Don't leave it until the last minute to submit.
    • Don't discuss your nomination with your nominee - don't spoil the surprise!
    • If you have any questions please contact Communications.WhittHealth@nhs.net

    All nominations will then be considered by an expert panel from across the trustís staff and board.
     
    The winners will be announced at an awards ceremony taking place on Thursday 12 September 2019 at the Royal College of Physicians.
