Extraordinary People Awards

Extraordinary People Awards

Our NHS staff and volunteers deliver extraordinary work every day.

Through our Extraordinary People Awards we aim to recognise and celebrate their efforts and achievements.

2023 awards

There are 11 categories in our awards, which link to our Trust values, celebrate excellent care and innovations, and recognise achievements that are helping us to deliver our Trust strategy.

Nominations closed on Sunday 24 September 2023. Nominations for most of the awards in our scheme came from staff and volunteers, but the Extraordinary Care category was open to patients and carers too.
