We depend on the skills and professionalism of our staff and each year we recognise and celebrate their outstanding achievements through our staff awards ceremony, Our Stars.

Our Stars 2018

We believe in recognising the contribution of each member of our team and highlighting their achievements which is vital in boosting staff morale. Our annual staff awards ceremony is a night of celebration where we showcase the innovation and dedication of our patient focused staff.

The Amvale Our Stars 2018 event will take place on Friday 2 November 2018 at The Baths Hall in Scunthorpe.

On the night we will be recognising those individuals and teams who go the extra mile to make a real difference to others. All too often our staff don’t realise that what they do is
special; they see the exceptional things they do as simply part of their daily job.

Award categories

Compassion in Practice Award – Aimed someone caring, compassionate and dedicated to putting our patients’ needs first at all times. This award seeks to recognise the clinical person who excels in providing the very highest standard of care.
Unsung Hero Award – There are many roles in our ‘back office functions’ that deserve recognition. The unsung hero award is for that special person who makes a difference day-in, day-out but goes largely unnoticed.
The Achiever Award – Each team has one, that ‘get things done’ person, the one who outperforms everyone else. The achiever is a vital cog in the wheel and always delivers, no matter what. They often exceed expectations and give their all to ensure deadlines are met. They get things done, on time, every time.
The One to Watch – From somebody taking their first tentative steps of an NHS career, perhaps an apprentice or the subject expert in the team who’s come from outside the organisation. This award recognises newcomers to the Trust who have already made a noticeable difference and are surely set for a bright future.
Volunteer of the Year Award – We rely on our volunteers for many things; from that friendly face when visitors arrive on site to managing the patient library, helping out on the wards and in the chapel. This is our small way of recognising and sincerely thanking them for their outstanding contribution.
Student of the Year – This award acknowledges the outstanding student a budding nurse, AHP, scientist or doctor. Already a key member of our team this student is destined to be an exemplary member of our future workforce.
Mentor of the Year -This award recognises mentors, whether nurses, AHPs or doctor who have used their exceptional knowledge and understanding of their subject area to engage their students imaginatively and effectively. Their passion and creativity ensures the highest quality of teaching and inspires their students to achieve their true potential.
Frontline Leader of the Year – In recognition of an inspiring leader, who through their skills, style, charisma and engagement with others have made a huge difference in taking them and the service around them into the next century!
Senior Clinical Leader of the Year – In recognition of an inspiring leader, who through their skills, style, charisma and engagement with others have made a huge difference in taking them and the service around them into the next century!

Team of the Year Award (non-clinical) – Team work is everything and this recognises that non-clinical team who simply delivers. At the top of their game these team members work exceptionally well together to deliver an outstanding service.
Team of the Year Award (clinical) – In recognition of that outstanding clinical team that look after both their patients and each other, working exceptionally well together to deliver an outstanding service even at times of extreme operational pressure!
Health Tree Foundation Charity Champion Award – This award recognises the wonderful contribution that our charity fundraisers make. They raise hundreds of thousands of pounds for the Trust, via the Health Tree Foundation, which makes a huge difference to the working lives of staff and patient care.

Quality Improvement Award – This award highlights the outstanding achievements of those individuals or teams who have implemented a continuous quality improvement idea, in a clinical or non-clinical setting, that has made a real impact on our services.
Improving Together Innovation Award – The innovator is someone who has brought in something new which dramatically, and positively, improves how we do things; whether in clinical practice or elsewhere. They could have redesigned services, pushed the boundaries on a research project or just brought those light bulb moments to life. We can all have good ideas, but the innovator makes them a reality.
The Staff Star Award – This is the person that walks in the room and lights it up for no reason other than being themselves. It’s the person who motivates their colleagues, lifts everyone’s spirits and generally brightens peoples days. This award allows staff to say to a very special member of the team ‘Thank you for being you!’
Patient’s Choice Award– Every year we ask our patients and their families to tell us about their heroes, the member of our team who made a real difference at their time of need, improved their experience and for those that created a lasting positive impact.
Chief Executive’s Shining Star  – Each year we ask the CEO to personally select a winner who they feel has shone the brightest over the last 12 months.
Chairman’s Outstanding Achievement Award – Each year we ask the Trust Chairman to choose someone who has achieved great things and should be celebrated.
