NNUH Proud to Launch Monthly Staff Awards
A new monthly staff award is being introduced at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital and Cromer Hospital from today (1st June) enabling patients and colleagues to nominate staff who have shown great kindness, expertise or dedication which goes above and beyond their job role.
The new NNUH Pride Award is supplementary to the Trust’s annual staff awards scheme, where nominations can be made in April and May, providing a year round opportunity for patients who want to say thank you for their care.
Jeremy Over, Director of Workforce said: “NNUH is a very special place and everything we achieve as a hospital is a result of the dedication and commitment of our staff. We want to acknowledge those acts of kindness and care which make a difference to our patients every day and this new scheme provides a route for colleagues, patients and their families to say what a difference our staff have made to their visit or hospital stay.”
The Awards are based on the Trust’s values which are the things that matter to us: People-focused, Respect, Integrity, Dedication and Excellence (PRIDE). Each month there will be two members of staff who will receive recognition and one team winner every quarter. The NNUH PRIDE awards are being supported by Barnham Broom Hotel which is providing an ‘Afternoon Tea for Two’ or ‘ Fitness Voucher’ for individual winners with hospital service provider Serco providing the winning teams with cake and fruit to share.
Louise Cook, Fundraising Manager, said, “We are delighted to have the support of Barnham Broom Hotel and Serco with our new awards to give our staff a small, thank you gift.”
The first awards will be presented by the NNUH Chief Executive Mark Davies at the end of July. Nominations are welcome online from colleagues, patients, families and anyone else connected to the hospital – all they need to do is complete a short online form on who they would like to nominate and why.
