Local people have until 5pm on March 1 to nominate a George Eliot Hospital worker or volunteer for a special ‘Patient Choice Award’ to recognise high quality care.
George Eliot Hospital is inviting members of the public to nominate a staff member or volunteer who has cared for them, a friend or family member, as part of The Team Eliot awards.
Now in their second year, George Eliot Hospital holds the awards to recognise the excellent work of its staff and volunteers. The Team Eliot awards are linked to the Trust’s vision ‘To Excel at Patient Care’ and nominees should be able to represent the following core values:
- Effective open communication
- eXcellence in all that we do
- Challenge but support
- Expect respect and dignity
- Local healthcare that inspires confidence
There are ten award categories in total, eight of the shortlists will be submitted by members of hospital staff, one shortlist – The Patient Choice Award - will be made up of nominations submitted by the public.
To mark the sad passing of the hospitals’ Chairman in October 2017, a special Stuart Annan Award has been created this year, with the winner being chosen by the Trust’s Interim Chairman from the list of category nominees.
Kath Kelly, Chief Executive of the Trust said: “I’m very proud of all of our staff and volunteers at the George Eliot and it is fitting that we mark the memory of Stuart with an award in his name.
“The Team Eliot Awards are a fantastic opportunity to publicly thank the many nurses, doctors, consultants and support staff who each play such an important role in the hospital. I encourage people to share their stories about the care we provide.”
To nominate a member of staff or a volunteer, please pick up a nomination form in the hospital or download a nomination form from the hospital website.
People can post nominations to ‘Team Eliot Awards, Communications, Lewes House, George Eliot Hospital NHS Trust, College Street, Nuneaton, CV10 7DJ or hand them to any member of staff.
The awards are to be presented on July 13.
