Do you know a member of staff 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 their fifth year, will be held on Friday 10th 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, sponsored by software developers Net Orange, is shortlisted only from staff nominated by members of the public.

Trust staff nominate colleagues for awards in six other categories.

Nominations, which can be made online at the Trust website, close at midnight on 8th March 2013. They can also be made in writing by calling 01704 704714 and requesting a nomination form.

Jonathan Parry, chief executive of Southport and Ormskirk Hospital NHS Trust, said: “Pride Awards 2013 is the chance for patients and their families to highlight someone who they think made their experience of care that extra bit special.”

“Our staff work for the NHS across north Sefton and West Lancashire in community roles such as district nurses as well as in the hospitals at Southport and Ormskirk.

“They receive thousands of thank yous every year from patients and their families but the Patients’ Award is a a special and very public way of saying thank you.”
