Public can nominate health professionals who go the extra mile

Patients from across Norfolk are being asked to nominate the health professional or hospital team who has gone the extra mile in providing their care at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital or Cromer Hospital.

The annual Patient Choice award supported by the Eastern Daily Press enables NNUH to recognise those staff who provide exceptional patient care, kindness or outstanding professional expertise.

Patients can nominate any nurse, doctor, midwife, therapist, receptionist or other member of staff who looked after them during an outpatient visit, day treatment or hospital stay.

John Fry, NNUH chairman, said: “It is important that we recognise and reward the fantastic care and hard work that our staff put in for local people.”

Jane Scarfe, NNUH deputy lead public governor said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for patients to nominate those truly exceptional individuals or teams who have made a difference to their lives.”

Closing date for nominations is 31st May 2017. To make a nomination visit  the website

The awards are sponsored by Serco which provides a range of services at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital, including catering and cleaning.
