Final Call for Excellence Awards 2017 Nominations…do you know someone who has made a difference?

Do you know a member of health and social care staff who has provided exceptional treatment and care for you or your relative?

The Southern Health and Social Care 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.

The closing date for nominations is 5pm on Monday 6 March 2017.

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

Do you know someone who deserves this award?
