Staff awards – You’re A Star Awards
Every year we highlight, honour and celebrate individuals across our organisation who have been nominated by their colleagues for going the extra mile to make a real difference to others.
Inspired by our vision of connecting people to the best quality care, when and where they need it, and to be a national role model as an employer – our ‘You’re a Star Awards’ event recognises staff from all areas of our Trust.
The seven categories are: Unsung Hero, Working Together, Non-Clinical Star/s, Improvements and Innovation, Service user, Carer and Volunteer Contributions, Team of the Year, Equality, Diversity and Inclusion.
