Help recognise star staff at the Princess Alexandra Hospital
Every day, thousands of people from across Hertfordshire and West Essex are cared for by staff at the Princess Alexandra Hospital Trust (PAHT) and they frequently share their thanks and appreciation for the care and compassion they have received in letters and online comments. Patients now have an opportunity to celebrate the dedication and commitment of the hospital staff and volunteers who make a difference every day.
Nominations are now open for the annual Our Amazing People Awards that give staff, patients and visitors the opportunity to celebrate staff achievements and recognise their the hard work and commitment to patient care throughout the year.
Patients and visitors to the trust are invited to nominate a member of staff or volunteer who they believe goes above and beyond in their way they provide care.
Lance McCarthy, chief executive said: "The Our Amazing People Awards are a fantastic opportunity to recognise our amazing staff and volunteers who show dedication and commitment to providing high quality care to our patients and visitors.
"Each year I am delighted by the number of nominations we receive. The last 12 months have seen so many positive changes and improvements at the trust and it is a great opportunity for our patients and visitors to acknowledge the care they have received."
Nominees may be in a patient-facing role, such as a nurse, doctor, therapist, midwife or porter, or they may be someone who works behind the scenes and is essential to the smooth running of the hospital such as a receptionist, pharmacist or radiologist.
Last year's winner in the Living the Values category winner was Stuart Hanlon, IT service design and operations manager, who said "I was thrilled to receive an Our Amazing People award last year; it's great to be a part of PAHT and goes without saying the support I get from the team is exceptional. It's inspiring to work with such dedicated and caring people who are committed to providing a quality service for both staff and patients."
Nominations are open until Friday 31 May, click here to make your nomination or printed copies are available in the Princess Alexandra Hospital restaurant (location A21, Zone A, lower ground floor).
