Congratulations to winners of NNUH staff awards

Staff and volunteers from the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital and Cromer Hospital have just received awards in recognition of their outstanding efforts and achievements.

The awards were presented at a special Staff Awards ceremony held at The Forum in Norwich on 23rd October with guest presenter from the BBC Alex Dunlop.

It is the second year running that the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust has run an awards scheme for its 6,000 staff. Patients and colleagues have been able to nominate employees in 11 award categories, such as leadership, innovation, patient care and lifetime achievement. The award ceremony also recognised those employees who had achieved long service of 25 or 40 years.

Chairman David Prior says: “It's such a pleasure to be able to recognise those special employees who go above and beyond the call of duty in helping our patients and those who dedicate their working lives to our hospitals. The response to the awards was overwhelming with over 500 entries many of them from patients with heart-warming stories to tell.”

The awards have been sponsored by Serco which provides a range of services at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital, including catering and cleaning. The Patient Choice Award was backed by the Eastern Daily Press and the Innovation/Best Suggestion award was backed by Octagon.
