Awards evening to celebrate success of hospital staff


The commitment and dedication of staff working at our trust is to be recognised at a special awards evening on 13th November.


Now in its sixth year, the Celebrating Success Staff Awards aim to thank staff for their hard work, their innovation and for the outstanding care they provide for patients.


Teams and individual members of staff will be presented with Excellence Awards after being nominated by colleagues for their contributions to Trust services. Shortlisted candidates for each category will attend, with winners announced on the night.


The Patient’s Choice award takes place for the second time this year with guest presenter Dr Claire Feehily of Healthwatch Gloucestershire.


In addition, other members of staff will be presented with Long Service Awards and Learning and Development certificates.


We are fortunate again this year to have attracted commercial sponsors for our Staff Awards.


Their involvement allows us to create links with local businesses, and gives them the opportunity to attend the evening and hear at first hand some of the wonderful things our staff have done.Their funding allows us to photograph shortlisted candidates and print high quality materials which help to give the event a professional feel.


This year our sponsors are Rewards For Rescue, Alpha Colour Printers and Safe at Home. Thanks to all of them for their continued interest in and support of our Trust and the NHS.


Chief Executive Dr Frank Harsent said: “We were delighted with the response this year, with more than 150 nominations returned for our internal awards. In addition, more than 50 of our patients took the time to nominate members of staff who had made their experience better. It’s an all round celebration of the excellent staff we are privileged to have in our Trust.”


The Celebrating Success Awards 2013 will take place on Wednesday November 13th at Kingsholm Stadium, Gloucester.
