The winners of the Sherwood Forest Hospitals Staff Excellence Awards will be announced tonight
The shortlist for this year’s Sherwood Forest Hospitals Staff Excellence Awards has been announced.
The People’s Award was open to patients, visitors and the public to nominate a member of staff or a team that they feel has gone above and beyond during their care or the care of a loved one at King’s Mill Hospital, Mansfield Community Hospital or Newark Hospital, and this year more than 500 nominations were received from staff, patients and visitors.
The shortlist was put together by members of the board of directors, Foundation Trust governors, staff side representatives, patients and SFH staff.
Chief executive, Richard Mitchell, said: "We received a fantastic number of nominations from staff and the public this year. Thank you to everyone who took the time to complete a nomination form as it will mean so much to the person or team nominated.
“I know that the judges had a tough decision choosing the shortlist this year and they commented that the quality was very high.
"All teams and individuals that were nominated should take pride in the fact that a colleague or a patient has taken the time to nominate them for the care or service they provide.
"I have written to every single person who was nominated to let them know and to thank them personally for their commitment to SFH."
Winners will be announced at an awards ceremony and dinner tonight (Friday) at the John Fretwell Sporting Complex in Warsop.
