South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust has been shortlisted for the excellence in accident and emergency care award, part of the CHKS annual Top Hospitals programme awards 2015. The CHKS Top Hospitals awards celebrate the success of healthcare providers across the UK and are awarded to healthcare organisations for their achievements in healthcare quality and improvement.
Do you know a nurse, healthcare assistant or midwife who has gone above and beyond the call of duty? South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is looking for nominations for its annual Nightingale Awards which recognise the hard work and dedication of nursing and midwifery staff at The James Cook University Hospital in Middlesbrough, Friarage Hospital in Northallerton and local community hospitals and health services.
Each year, the nurse and midwife consultants at South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust ask for nominations from staff and patients highlighting nursing and midwifery staff who have gone above and beyond their duty to deliver exceptional patient care.
This year the overall winner was 27 year-old Jamie Goldswain. Jamie is not only the first male to pick up the coveted award but he is also the first non-registered nurse to collect the prize in the ten years the awards scheme has been running.
Do you know someone at South Tees who is a ‘star’ and deserves an award for going that extra mile to help a patient or improve a service? If so, then you can nominate them in the trust’s annual star awards, an event which recognises the work of staff, volunteers and fundraisers across the entire organisation.
