We celebrated a whole host of professions from across our hospital and community services at our glittering annual staff awards ceremony, Our Stars 2023.
A total of 12 awards were presented on Friday night at The Baths Hall in Scunthorpe, with nurses, therapists and those working behind the scenes in non-clinical roles amongst those recognised.
Nominations were accepted from staff and patients for the awards – with more than 1,000 received.
Our Group Chief Executive Jonathan Lofthouse presented a surprise award on the night – for someone he felt had shone brightly and deserved recognition. Lynn Sherlock, Mortuary Assistant at Scunthorpe hospital was recognised for the care and compassion she shows to her patients and their families.
