Staff Awards 2019

Our CDDFTStar Awards     

We know that we have many fantastic colleagues working as part of #TeamCDDFT and our annual staff awards are the perfect way to recognise and celebrate their commitment and dedication - a nomination doesn't take long to complete but it can really make a difference to the person or team being nominated!     

We receive many nominations every year which is a testament to the dedication and commitment which runs through #TeamCDDFT! And which mean we are delivering the best care for our patients and local populations.

So, to help make your nomination stand out we've included some helpful hints below:          

  • Consider all categories available and choose the most appropriate one for your nomination     
  • Provide examples of how your nominee has shown exemplary work or provided exceptional care and where possible link this to the Trust's values: 


  • Working together for patients 
  • Respect and dignity
  • Commitment to quality of care 
  • Compassion 
  • Improving lives 
  • Everyone counts 


  • Highlight the achievements, benefits, improvements etc your nominee has made to the Trust and/or to service users, carers, staff, colleagues and what a difference this has made    
  •   Please stick to the 500 word limit and try to keep it jargon free as some of our judges may not be familiar with certain terminology     
  •   Use one form per nomination

Closing date is Friday 13 September 2019. Judging will then take place during September with award presentations taking place during October and November 2019.     

If your nomination has been successful we will contact you during September and winners will be announced in October / November. 

We look forward to reading your nominations!
