Rising star Megan shortlisted for NHS Parliamentary Awards 2023

This article is more than one year old.

Megan Jones, a Fundraising Officer with Oxford Hospitals Charity, has been shortlisted for this year’s NHS Parliamentary Awards after being nominated by Witney & West Oxfordshire MP Robert Courts.

She was the South East regional winner of the NHS Rising Star Award category and will attend a special event in Westminster on 5 July – the 75th birthday of the NHS – when the national winners will be announced in each award category.

Megan, 29, from Oxford, raises funds to support patients and staff at Oxford University Hospitals (OUH) by generating income from Trusts and Foundations. 

Since she joined the Charity team two years ago she has played a key role in raising funds for specialist equipment for the spinal endoscopy service, a new Cath Lab in the Oxford Heart Centre, dementia activity trolleys, and a new Play Specialist role in our Children’s Hospital. 

Professor Meghana Pandit, Chief Executive Officer of Oxford University Hospitals said:
 "Thank you to Megan and to the entire Oxford Hospitals Charity team for everything they do every day to support our patients and our staff and many congratulations to Megan for her well deserved recognition in the NHS Parliamentary Awards."

Megan Jones added: "I really love my role at Oxford Hospitals Charity – there’s always something new that the Charity is doing to support patients and staff at OUH – and being shortlisted for this award has just inspired me to keep working really hard and raise even more funds to help these hospitals that mean so much to our local community."

Robert Courts MP, who nominated Megan, said:  "I am delighted that Megan has been recognised for her outstanding fundraising efforts and has been named as the South East regional winner in the NHS Rising Star Category of this year’s NHS Parliamentary Awards.

"Megan’s inspiring work and dedication to help others has seen her raise more than £250,000 to fund projects across Oxford University Hospitals. I am proud to have nominated Megan and I wish her the very best of luck at the national awards ceremony on 5 July."

Douglas Graham, Chief Executive Officer of Oxford Hospitals Charity added:
 "We are really delighted that Megan’s dedication has been noticed in such a special way. This role is not just a job to her, it is a true calling. She is passionate about making a difference for the patients and staff across our hospitals and every day she goes above and beyond to ensure the Charity can achieve its goals."
