These annual awards are an opportunity to celebrate the achievements of teams and individuals who have made an outstanding contribution to patient care and supporting services over the last year. They are open to everyone working at RCHT, including volunteers and hotel services colleagues employed by Mitie.
To go alongside the usual five categories, this year we have added an extra category, to mark the 70th Anniversary of the NHS. We are looking for outstanding individuals (current or former members of staff or volunteers) who have made a significant contribution to patient care and safety in acute services in Cornwall, over the last 70 years. This could be developing services, innovations, research or exceptional care or leadership.
RCHT Chairwoman, Dr Mairi McLean said:
“It has been wonderful to see how the NHS 70th anniversary is bringing people together to celebrate the amazing work of staff across the NHS.
We’ve seen some marvellous examples locally with expressions of thanks and stories of the life-saving and life-changing care that goes on.
With so many outstanding teams and individuals deserving of recognition, it would be fitting to see this support translated into a bumper crop of nominations this year.”
The six categories are:
Care + Compassion
Inspiration + Innovation
Pride + Achievement
Trust + Respect
And our special category for this year is:
NHS70: Lifetime Achievement
Anyone can make a nomination, staff, patients and their relatives. You can do this online by clicking here: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/WeCareAwards18 or alternatively we can forward a paper nomination form if you email firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 01872 253216.
To make sure your nomination has the best chance of success be sure to include as much supporting information as you are able. We’re looking for between 300 and 400 words that make a compelling case for why the team or individual deserve to be recognised, making specific reference to how their work reflects the values in the category in which they are being nominated.
