Proud Awards 2017 – just a few days left to nominate a healthcare hero!

Public Recognition Award 2015

With less than 1 week left to nominate, patients, carers and colleagues are being urged to nominate their health care heroes for recognition in The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust’s 2017 Proud Awards.

The awards celebrate excellence in healthcare by recognising Rotherham’s exceptional NHS colleagues who pull out all the stops to deliver first class community and hospital services across our borough.

Following the tremendous success of last year’s awards, with over 400 nominations received in total, the Trust is again delighted to invite patients and members of the public to nominate the Trust’s healthcare professionals for a 2017 Public Recognition Award. The Public Recognition Award provides a fantastic opportunity for members of the public to nominate individuals and/or teams who have made a real difference, provided high quality service and/or outstanding care.

The Trust’s colleagues, eligible to be nominated for awards, deliver services at Rotherham Hospital, Rotherham Community Health Centre, BreathingSpace, the Park Rehabilitation Centre and at health centres across our town and includes those working in people’s own homes and communities such as school nurses and district nurses.

You may have seen the story about the 2016 winner, Joanne Rose, Parkinson’s Disease Nurse Specialist.

In 2015, the Public Recognition Award winner was Rachel Kay, a Community Practitioner for one of the Trust’s District Nursing Teams. Rachel was nominated by Bev Belcher for the care and support she provided to Bev’s mother during the final year of her life.

Rachel supported the family, both mentally and physically, to help them through the journey. Her dedication to her role also meant Bev’s mother had access to the right treatment, support and equipment at home, rather than being admitted to hospital when her condition sadly deteriorated.

Do you know a healthcare professional deserving of an award? Nominate them for the 2017 Public Recognition Award: simply complete the nomination form, visit www.therotherhamft.nhs.uk/Proud2017/ or call 01709 426084 to have a paper form posted out to you. You could also email us details of your nomination to proud@rothgen.nhs.uk. Postal details are also available on the form.

Please complete the form with as much detail as possible, providing the name of the individual or team and specific examples of your experience. The closing date for nominations is 29 September 2017 and the official Proud Awards ceremony will take place on 1 December.

Alongside the awards, at the end of November, the Trust will run a week of celebrations to mark the dedication and achievements of all those at the Trust. The week of events will also include a Learner Awards ceremony and Long Service celebrations.
