Award trophy

Employee of the Month

Are you a patient or visitor to our hospitals, or a relative or carer of someone treated here, who has received exceptional care or service from a staff member or volunteer at the Trust?

If you would like that person to be recognised for their excellence, please nominate them for our Employee of the Month award.

This award is designed to recognise the commitment and dedication of our staff who go above and beyond what is expected of them to make a difference to patients, visitors and/or their colleagues. Any employee, bank staff or volunteer can be nominated whether their role is front line or behind the scenes.

The nominations are scored by a panel of judges which includes Chief Executive Dame Marianne Griffiths, Denise Farmer, Chief Workforce and Organisational Development Officer, Dr Maggie Davies Director of Nursing, Lizzie Peers Non-Executive Director, John Todd Patient representative and Associate Governor and James Barclay staff representative.

The winner is presented with a certificate and £50 and is automatically considered for the Employee of the Year award at our annual STAR awards. The winner and every person nominated receives a personal letter from Dame Marianne, and is included in a ‘roll of honour’ on our website. The winner is announced on social media.
