There are only two weeks left to nominate your hospital heroes for an award.

Have you experienced great care in Lincolnshire’s hospitals? Do you know of an NHS worker who has gone above and beyond to do the best for you or your family? Then nominate them for a staff award.

There are now only two weeks left to nominate your chosen staff member or team for a United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust (ULHT) Staff Awards for 2016.

So far, over 260 nominations have been made across all 12 categories of the awards and for staff and teams working at hospitals in Lincoln, Boston, Grantham and Louth.

The closing date for nominations for the 2016 award is Friday January 15, 2016. This will be followed by a judging process and awards being handed out to the winners at a glittering ceremony at the Princess Royal Sports Arena in Boston in April.

The awards are a chance to recognise great care and compassion, team work or innovation within Lincolnshire’s hospitals, either from individual staff members or teams.

Non-executive director of ULHT, Penny Owston, said: “We are delighted by the number of nominations we’ve had for the awards already, which is more than we have ever had before.

“But we know that there is some amazing work going on within our hospitals that is yet to be recognised, and I’d encourage our patients and staff to consider nominating an individual or team for a staff award to give them a thank you for all that they do.

“We’re also planning to run a raffle at our staff awards event next year to help raise money for our hospital charities, and we’d like to invite local businesses to support us with this by donating raffle prizes.”

If you know someone who deserves to be recognised, fill in a nomination form on the front page of the Trust website at www.ulh.nhs.ukor pick up a form at hospital reception desks and departments.
