In July 2012, to mark the 64th
birthday of the NHS, an exciting recognition scheme was launched
'NHS Heroes' was designed to give everyone in England the chance
to acknowledge NHS staff. For the first time, patients, their
friends and families, work colleagues and professional peers could
nominate their personal NHS Heroes.
The Trust was delighted to be part of the scheme and give
recognition to individuals and teams, celebrate the extraordinary
work identified by their patients and colleagues, and for going
'the extra mile' over and above their everyday duties.
Chris Lisle, the Trust's Director of HR & Organisation
Development, said: "As an employer we see the dedication of our NHS
staff day in and day out. Every year we hold a staff awards
ceremony to recognise and celebrate these achievements locally.
However, the NHS Heroes initiative is a great way to complement our
existing recognition scheme and bring national attention to the
local healthcare heroes who mean so much to the people they
Nominations are now open for national
