The Trust seeks to formally acknowledge and recognise the contribution and loyalty of those individuals who have given 25 years service to the NHS, 10 of which must be as an employee of Oxford University Hospitals. The award is in the form of high street retail vouchers.

The way we issue the gift is by issuing a Compliments Card. Details of the retailers this can be used at (both in store and online) can be accessed online. This will be sent directly to the employee's home address with details of how to activate the card online.
