Hospital Apprenticeship team Shortlisted for local business award

A hospital Apprenticeship team has been shortlisted in the EDP Business Awards in the Community Impact category; the third shortlisting the team has received within a month.

The announced shortlist recognises businesses and organisations which are working to generate tangible benefits beyond the bottom line and into the wider world.

The award focuses on companies who are making a real impact on their local community – especially in areas of disadvantage.

The entry by NNUH focused on the wide range of access to work schemes in place at the hospital including The Prince’s Trust “Get in to Hospital Services” and the Pre-Apprenticeship programme for local sixth forms. The entry also featured as well as the new Health and Social Care apprenticeship programme, being delivered in partnership with Norfolk County Council and Health Education England, where NNUH was selected as one of the first pilot sites.

Jeremy Over, NNUH Director of Workforce said: “We are delighted to be shortlisted for the awards this year. The quality of services that NHS organisations provide to patients and carers relies heavily on attracting and retaining the very best individuals, who embody the values of the NHS, to work within it.

The awards winners will be announced at an awards dinner at the Norfolk Showground on 5th November.
