Trust holds first ever staff awards
Staff from the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital and Cromer Hospital will receive recognition for their outstanding efforts and achievements later this week at a Staff Awards ceremony being held at The Forum in Norwich on 17th October.
It is the first time that the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust has run an awards scheme. Patients and staff have been able to nominate employees in 12 award categories, such as leadership, innovation, patient care and lifetime achievement.
Those employees receiving long service awards have also been invited to the ceremony and over 30 people will be collecting 25 year service awards with six people picking up 40 year service awards.
Chairman David Prior says: We are very proud of our employees and delighted to be able to recognise those special staff who go the extra mile to help their patients and colleagues; and those who have given so much of their working lives to our hospitals.
The BBCs presenter Carol Bundock will be compering the awards. Over 270 entries were received for the awards, including about 130 nominations received from local patients via the Eastern Daily Press which backed the Patients’ Choice Award.
The awards have been sponsored by Serco which provides a range of services at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital, including catering and cleaning.
