Right Arrow Vote for your NHS hero in our Pride Awards 2012
30 January 2012 at 12:55
Do you know a member of staff hospitals working at our hospitals or in our community health services who deserves special recognition for their excellence and professionalism?

The Trust’s Pride Awards, now in its fourth year, will be held at Friday 18th May at Southport Theatre and Convention Centre.

The Patients’ Award is an opportunity for patients and families to show their individual appreciation to a particular member of staff or team. The award is shortlisted only from members of staff nominated by the public.

This year the public can nominate staff who not only work at Southport and Ormskirk hospitals but joined the Trust in April and work delivering care in clinics, health centres and in patients’ homes.

Nominations, which can be made online at, close at midnight on 24th February 2012.

Nominations can also be made in writing by calling 01704 704714 and requesting a form. They are also available from the volunteer welcomers at the receptions of Southport and Ormskirk hospitals.

Jonathan Parry, chief executive of Southport and Ormskirk Hospital NHS Trust, said: “Our staff do extraordinary things every day of the year for patients across Sefton, West Lancashire and beyond in hospitals, health centres and at home.

“Pride Awards 2012 is the chance for patients and their families to highlight someone who they think made their experience of care that extra bit special.”

Awards will also be presented in the following categories from nominations made by Trust staff:

• Team of the Year (sponsored by Hill Dickinson)
• Unsung Hero – Staff
• Unsung Hero – Volunteer
• Service Transformation / Innovation
• Inspirational Role Model
• Infection Prevention Award
