Staff and teams from across Lincolnshire’s hospitals have been recognised at a glittering staff awards ceremony.
After two years of ‘virtual’ awards events due to the COVID-19 pandemic, United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust last night celebrated its staff awards with an event for around 220 staff.
Award winners and highly commended entries received trophies, certificates and prizes in recognition of their excellence during the ceremony held at the Lincolnshire Showground on Thursday 13 October, sponsored by Altodigital.
The awards celebrate staff and teams who go above and beyond for their patients, recognise unsung heroes, those who demonstrate compassion and respect and those who innovate to benefit patients.
ULHT Chief Executive, Andrew Morgan said: “The last few years have been difficult for us all, it has been amazing to be able to celebrate and award so many teams and individuals from across ULHT. Everyone who won an award this year should be incredibly proud.
“We received over 770 awards nominations for people working across our hospitals this year. We have amazing staff working to care for the people of Lincolnshire and I would like to thank them all for everything they do day-in, day-out.”
Trust Chair, Elaine Baylis said: “In what has been an unprecedented couple of years for the NHS, it has been so great to be able to celebrate and award so many amazing staff in this years’ awards. The amount of nominations we had overall is testament to the hard work and dedication shown. Thank you and well done to all those nominated this year and special congratulations to the winners for their achievement.”
