The caring, compassion and dedication of hospital staff from across Lincolnshire will be recognised at a glittering awards ceremony later this year.

Following an extensive longlisting and shortlisting process, the nominations for this year’s United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust Staff Awards have now been whittled down to the final shortlist.

This year, the awards attracted over 600 nominations – recognising the staff who go above and beyond to provide excellent healthcare to the people of Lincolnshire.

Now, all nominations have been considered and the shortlist for each award chosen. In total, 44 individuals and teams who work across Lincolnshire’s hospitals have been shortlisted for this year’s awards in 11 categories.

Everyone shortlisted will be invited to the awards evening, along with their nominator. The event will take place at the Epic Centre at the Lincolnshire Showground on Thursday 2 May.

ULHT Chair Elaine Baylis said: “The huge amount of nominations we receive every year is a great testament to the hard work, dedication and enthusiasm our staff have for caring for the people of Lincolnshire.

“The Staff Awards are such a great way to recognise and celebrate all of our achievements and successes and everyone should be very proud to have been shortlisted.”

The awards are entirely funded by sponsorship from local businesses and suppliers for which we are very grateful. Any business which is interested in supporting the awards is asked to contact [email protected] or call 01522 573986.
