Nominate your NHS stars

Staff achievement awards 2014 600x400pxDo you know an individual or team working for the NHS in Bolton that deserves recognition? Perhaps someone who has looked after you, a friend or a relative at home or in hospital?

Bolton NHS Foundation Trust is seeking nominations from patients and other members of the public as well as from staff for its 2014 staff achievement awards.

“We know from patients’ letters that they really appreciate the hard work and care they receive from our staff,” says Suzanne Woolridge, Head of Human Resources. “We want to recognise that effort by giving the very best of them an award and we’d like local people to get involved in this.”

Nominations are open from now until September 12th in the following categories:

  • Employee of the year – Nominations are sought to recognise an individual who has performed outstanding work over and above expectation.  Do you know any individual member of staff who has gone above and beyond to provide a great service?
  • Team of the year – Nominations are sought for teams with exceptional performance, consistently delivered. Do you know of a team that fits the bill?
  • Quality improvement of the year– In support of our quality improvement strategy this award will recognise teams whose work has made a real difference to improving quality for our patients.
  • Volunteer of the year – This award will recognise the outstanding contributions made by our volunteers. Please nominate volunteers in your area if you think they deserve this recognition.
  • Student of the year– This award will recognise an individual student for exceptional achievement.


If you know of any team or individual that you think deserves recognition in any of the above categories please send us a nomination form which will ask you to explain what the team/individual has done, how this is over and above what you would expect to see, whether it can be shared for learning purposes, the impact it has had on our patients and how it supports our values.
