Nursing Awards

     Celebrating our Nurses and Midwives 

Do you feel a Nursing, Midwifery or Clinical Support Worker deserves special recognition? 

To help mark International Nurses Day, CDDFT is launching its annual nurses achievement awards. These awards are open to nominations from #TeamCDDFT colleagues as well as members of the public. They aim to celebrate any nurses, clinical support workers or midwives who have gone above and beyond and deserve that special recognition! 

#TeamCDDFT colleagues are invited to nominate a fellow nurse, clinical support worker or midwife who they think has made an outstanding contribution to nursing or midwifery in the Trust.   

While members of the public are invited to make a nomination through the 'Public Choice' award for care they or a loved one has received which they would like to recognise.  

This year's awards are extra special.  

May 12th is 'International Nurses Day' and this year would have been Florence Nightingale's 200th birthday. We normally would celebrate with our amazing nursing community on May 12th with a large scale conference  to listen to influential speakers and also to share learning and experiences but of course due to these unprecedented times this can't happen at the moment. Although we do have hopes that we will be able to hold our conference later in the year. 

Nursing staff across the country and regionally are working tirelessly to help, comfort and nurse Covid-19 patients and their families, working exceptionally long hours,  some of whom have moved out of their own homes to isolate their families whilst they carry on working.  Also Coronavirus does not stop babies being born and our midwives are as busy as ever!  

To recognise their hard work and amazing effort we would like invite you to nominate either an individual or team by completing the short form below.
