Perhaps you know a member of health and social care staff who has provided exceptional treatment and care for you or your relative? If you do the Southern Health and Social Care Trust would like to know. Nominations close on 6 March.
The Trust has launched the Excellence Awards for 2017 and is asking for members of the public to play their part and nominate a member of staff who has made a big difference to their lives for the People’s Choice Award before it is too late.
Siobhan Rooney, a non-executive director with the Trust, and chair of the Excellence Awards committee, said: “The staff excellence awards recognise those staff who make such a difference to patients and clients by going that extra mile. You may wish to acknowledge staff who work in hospital, come to your home, are based in health centres or day centres, or who work as support staff – porters, domestics, drivers or clerical workers.”
“The People’s Choice award is for Trust employees who have demonstrated to a patient, client or relative exceptional care – maybe kindness, professional expertise or expert care which has made a difference in their life.”
The judges will be particularly looking for evidence of:
Putting the safety, needs and welfare of service users first
Ensuring service users feel valued and cared for
Treating service users with respect, dignity and compassion
Going above and beyond the call of duty
