The caring, compassion and dedication of hospital staff from across Lincolnshire will be recognised at a staff 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 700 nominations recognising the staff who go above and beyond to provide excellent healthcare to the people of Lincolnshire, particularly after this past year.
Now, all nominations have been considered and the shortlist for each award chosen. In total, 47 individuals and teams who work across Lincolnshire’s hospitals have been shortlisted for this year’s awards in 12 categories.
For this year, there is also an extra category, ‘COVID Hero’ to recognise the individuals and teams who have gone above and beyond to care for patients and colleagues during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Everyone shortlisted will be invited to the awards evening, along with their nominator. The event will take place in September, COVID restrictions permitting.
ULHT Chief Executive Andrew Morgan said: “Congratulations to everyone who has been nominated this year. I believe this huge number of nominations from both patients and colleagues really reflects our exceptional staff who go above and beyond to provide the best possible quality of care to patients.
“After the year we have all had judging has been especially difficult because of the high number of excellent nominations, and as so many people working within our hospitals clearly deserve to be recognised.”
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.
