People are being asked to nominate their healthcare heroes at the James Paget University Hospital.

Nominations are now open for the Gorleston hospital’s Remarkable People Awards 2018, designed to recognise the outstanding efforts of teams and members of staff who have gone ‘above and beyond’ to provide exceptional service.

There are 10 categories where nominations can be made including Clinical and Non-Clinical Team of the Year, Employee of the Year, Volunteer of the Year, Apprentice of the Year and the Inspiration Award.

Also included is the prestigious EDP Gold Patient Choice Award, which is reserved solely for patients, relatives or carers to thank an individual or team who have made a real difference to their or a loved one’s care.

Christine Allen, chief executive, said: “We know our staff strive to provide the best care they can, often in challenging circumstances, but these awards aim to highlight the very best in patient care, where an individual or team has truly made a difference and exceeded expectations.”

The closing date for nominations is Friday, June 15.

The ceremony will take place at the Wherry Hotel in Oulton Broad on October 5.

Nomination forms are available from the hospital’s main reception desk or you can fill it out online by following the link here.
