Exceptional Healthcare Awards 2013

Tuesday, 21 May 2013

North Bristol NHS Trust celebrates the hard work, innovation and strentghs of its workforce at the Exceptional Healthcare Awards 2013.

This will be the third year we have held our Trust-wide staff awards to recognise and reward the outstanding work of our staff and volunteers.

The Exceptional Healthcare Awards recognise individuals and teams who go the extra mile for patients, the public and their colleagues.

There are 10 categories for example the Most Successful Service Improvement or the Patient Safety Champion.

North Bristol NHS Trust Chief Executive Marie-Noelle Orzel said:  “The Exceptional Healthcare Awards are a tremendous way of recognising the outstanding work of our staff and volunteers, showing the Trust at its best.

“The awards highlight the numerous examples of exceptional care and innovation going on in our hospitals and community locations that make a huge difference to the lives of patients and staff.

“Well done to all our winners and to those who were shortlisted, and thank you once again to all who took the time to nominate.”

There were around 150 nominations and a panel which included staff and patient representatives decided on a shortlist.

The awards took place at St George’s, Bristol, on May 22 where the winners were announced at a ceremony hosted by BBC Radio Bristol’s Steve Le Fevre.

The event was once again funded by our generous corporate sponsors and charitable funds.
