Hospital Heroes is back!
18 July 2019
We know that not all heroes wear a cape, in fact our Hospital Heroes from years gone by will tell you that they are just doing their job, or don’t really want any fuss.
However,we all know someone who deserves recognition for making
the lives of patients or fellow colleagues that much better. We all
know someone who deserves to be celebrated, right?
The nominations window for the seventh annual Hospital Heroes
awards at Southend University Hospital is open until 9am on Monday
There are eight categories in total, spanning all grades and
professions, with awards specifically aimed at teams, clinical
staff, support staff and leaders.
The categories are Innovation, Care With Compassion, Unsung
Hero, Managing Director's Professional & Accountable Award,
Working Together, Employee of the Year, Chairman's Outstanding
Achievement Award and the Patients' Choice Award.
With the exception of the Employee of the Year award (selected
from the monthly award winners) and the Chairman's Outstanding
Achievement award (selected from all nominees across all categories
submitted for the annual awards), all nominees are entered for a
specific award category by colleagues or - in the case of the
Patients' Choice Award - by patients or their relatives.
