With an amazing 940 nominations – 2017 is a record year for nominations for our staff awards.
Very many congratulations to everyone who has been nominated – including staff, patients, volunteers and fundraisers. Thank you for all you do to improve the experience of our patients and their families. To be nominated by a patient or a colleague is an achievement of which you can be proud.
I have the privilege of shortlisting for the Lifetime Achievement Award and look forward to reading each of these 34 nominations in the coming weeks.
We know from the staff survey results that we have more to do to value and recognise our staff; and events such as NUHonours are one of the many ways in which we can achieve this.
I look forward to attending my first NUHonours Awards in November, with our incoming Chief Executive, Tracy Taylor, to celebrate the very best of ‘team NUH’. For now, well done to every nominee. Savour the moment.
If you have ideas for how we can improve the work we do to value and recognise our staff, please let me know and I will pass this on to the relevant workstream leads to follow-up (Bel Asher, Deputy Director of HR and Laura Skaife-Knight, Director of Communications). This group will meet for the first time over the coming weeks and your feedback will help to inform the workstream’s areas of focus.
