Cast your vote here now!

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 seventh year, will be held on Friday 5th June 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 staff nominated by members of the public who can make their nomination online here.

Staff themselves are nominating colleagues for awards in 12 other categories.

Nominations close at midnight on 20th March 2015 and can also be made by calling 01704 704714 and requesting a form.

Chief Executive Jonathan Parry said: “Our staff work for the NHS across Sefton and West Lancashire in community roles such as district nurses as well as in the many different services we provide at our hospitals in Southport and Ormskirk.

“Staff receive thousands of thank yous from patients and families every year but the Patients’ Award is a special and very public way of paying tribute to their care and professionalism.”

Last year's winner was Mark Bennett, Nurse Consultant in Urgent Care (pictured right).

If you would prefer to make a nomination by post, please contact the Marketing and Communications team on 01704 704714 for a nomination form.
