Nominations sought for Patient’s Choice Award

Help celebrate the efforts of local NHS staff by putting them forward for a special award.

Northern Lincolnshire and Goole NHS Foundation Trust is seeking nominations from patients and their loved ones to celebrate the achievements of dedicated and compassionate staff.

The Trust covers hospitals in Scunthorpe, Grimsby and Goole and community services in North Lincolnshire which includes district nurses, podiatrists and the community dental team.

If you’ve had a good experience and want to thank an individual staff member or even a whole team of professionals then nominate them for the Patient’s Choice Award 2018.

The winner will be revealed in November at the Trust’s annual staff awards event, Our Stars 2018.

18 awards will be presented on the night to staff, volunteers and charity fundraisers, but the most coveted award on the night is the one chosen by patients and the public.

Trust Chairman Anne Shaw said: “The NHS as a whole has had a very difficult winter and our staff have gone above and beyond, time and time again, to provide exceptional care for our patients.

“What better way to say thank you than nominating them for this prestigious award. Whether it was someone clinical who provided you with compassionate care or another member of our team who contributed to making your visit a positive one, we want to hear from you.”

Last year’s winner: Miss Jenny Smith

Last year’s winner was Miss Jenny Smith, consultant breast surgeon at Grimsby hospital who was recognised for giving outstanding care to her patients.

If you have been a patient or visitor at Scunthorpe, Grimsby or Goole hospitals or at one of the Trust’s community health services, you can nominate a staff member, clinical or non-clinical, in one of the following ways:

  • Call 03033 302528
  • Please ensure you provide your name, contact number, the name of the staff member you are nominating, the area they work in and the reason for the nomination.

    Nominations will be accepted up until Friday July 6.

    The winner of the Patient’s Choice award, and 17 other awards, will be revealed at the Our Stars 2018 event at the Baths Hall on Friday November 2.
