Vote for your health care hero

Ear­lier this month we launched a very spe­cial award for the first time. The Peter­bor­ough Hos­pi­tals Pub­lic Recog­ni­tion Award is your chance to nom­i­nate a team or in­di­vid­ual who works in health­care in the city for go­ing the ex­tra mile and pro­vid­ing fan­tasti

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - News -

IF you have ever wanted to say thank you to those in­volved in health­care in the city, but felt that a card or a box of choco­lates didn’t quite cut it, now is your op­por­tu­nity to give doc­tors, nurses or sup­port staff some pub­lic recog­ni­tion.

For the first time ever, a set of awards run by the Peter­bor­ough and Stam­ford Hos­pi­tals NHS Foun­da­tion Trust will in­clude a cat­e­gory voted for by mem­bers of the pub­lic.

Nom­i­na­tions for this award could be for a team or in­di­vid­ual who has gone above the call of duty, pro­vided out­stand­ing pa­tient care or made a real dif­fer­ence to the pa­tient they have treated, helped or sup­ported.

Any mem­ber of clin­i­cal or non-clin­i­cal staff can be nom­i­nated.

Three teams or in­di­vid­u­als will be short­listed from the nom­i­na­tions and the win­ner will be an­nounced at the awards cer­e­mony on Thurs­day, Oc­to­ber 7.

Chair­man of Peter­bor­ough and Stam­ford Hos­pi­tals NHS Foun­da­tion Trust Nigel Hards said: “As a trust we know how hard our staff work and how ded­i­cated they are to pro­vid­ing ex­cel­lent pa­tient care.

“How­ever we want our pa­tients to tell us about the staff who have made a dif­fer­ence to them and who they think de­serves to be recog­nised.

“Our pa­tients meet dif­fer­ent peo­ple and teams at dif­fer­ent stages of their care, from ini­tial as­sess­ments to those who carry out treat­ment and to staff who help dur­ing re­cov­ery and pro­vide af­ter-care, and we want them to tell us who has made a real dif­fer­ence.

“Any­one who works at Peter­bor­ough District Hos­pi­tal or Edith Cavell Hos­pi­tal can be nom­i­nated for an award and there are many clin­i­cal and non-clin­i­cal staff who do not al­ways recog­nise the won­der­ful work they do, so this is an op­por­tu­nity for them to be re­warded.”

To nom­i­nate some­one for the Pub­lic Recog­ni­tion Award, sim­ply com­plete the form printed be­low, and send it to Han­nah Gray, Pub­lic Recog­ni­tion Award, Peter­bor­ough Evening Tele­graph, 57 Pri­est­gate, Peter­bor­ough, PE1 1JW.

Al­ter­na­tively, you can nom­i­nate some­one on­line, by vis­it­ing www. pe­ter­bor­oughto­day.co.uk

All en­tries must be re­ceived by 5pm on Mon­day, July 19. Some of those short­listed will fea­ture in The ET, and the win­ner will be an­nounced in Oc­to­ber.
