Thank You Fortnight 2024

Thank You Fortnight catering staff

North Bristol NHS Trust are encouraging staff and members of the public to share their thanks during our annual Thank You Fortnight, from 8 – 19 January 2024.

We know that our staff here at North Bristol NHS Trust work hard all year round to provide great care for our patients, and we want to particularly thank them for their commitment over the busy winter period.

Maria Kane, Chief Executive, says; “I feel proud and grateful to our staff for all their hard work, and although we have methods of recognition in place all year round, in January, when our hospital is particularly busy and staff face increased pressures, I feel it is important to dedicate a fortnight to sharing our thanks. I know that many people would like to join me in expressing their gratitude, as each year our staff receive hundreds of thank you messages during our Thank You Fortnight. A simple ‘thank’ you can go a long way towards brightening someone’s day – please take a minute to thank an NHS staff member or team for everything they’re doing.”

Letters of Appreciation post boxes will be available at all our hospital sites for people to post hand-written letters of thanks to our staff, which will be hand-delivered to them by senior members of the Trust.

An electronic ‘thank you’ form is also available on our website to send messages of thanks, and you can share your thanks as a Facebook comment on our North Bristol NHS Trust page (, on Instagram (north_bristol_nhs) or on X tag @NorthBristolNHS and use the #ThankYouFortnight hashtag.

To get the ‘Thank You Ball’ rolling, you can see some of our staff passing their thanks on to each other in this video.
