Your chance to nominate hospital staff for annual award


Members of the public and patients are invited to nominate a member of staff or a team who has gone the extra mile to provide outstanding care at Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

The 2019 Patients' Choice Award is the opportunity for patients, their families and carers to say a special 'thank you' to the staff they feel have made a real difference during their time at the hospitals and therefore deserve recognition.

The winner will be revealed at the Trust's annual staff awards event in December at Oxford Town Hall.

Professor Sir Jonathan Montgomery, Chair of the Trust, said: "The Staff Recognition Awards are a fantastic opportunity to say 'thank you' to colleagues and teams who have gone beyond our expectations of their role.

"We are lucky to have so many inspiring staff members, and the evening will provide all of us the opportunity to acknowledge and celebrate the hard work of so many staff from all departments within Oxford University Hospitals."

The Staff Recognition Awards are part of the Trust's commitment to recognising and celebrating examples of best practice and help us improve our services.

The Trust runs four main hospitals including the John Radcliffe Hospital, Churchill Hospital and Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre in Oxford, as well as the Horton General Hospital in Banbury, in addition to some services from other community settings.

Patients, as well as their families and carers, can nominate a member of staff or team by completing the online Patients' Choice Award form.

Last year's winner was the Trust's Estates Department for their vital behind-the-scenes work across all four hospital sites.

The Patients' Choice Award was established in 2016, and celebrates the inspiring and innovative work the staff do across the Trust every day to improve the lives of patients and service users.

Nominations are open until the end of Friday 12 July 2019.
