Staff Choice Awards 2018/19

Celebrating excellence in mental health

Over the past few weeks, many of you have taken the opportunity to recognise the work of your colleagues who have improved the care and experience of our patients, and those teams and leaders who you are proud to work alongside, by nominating them for one of the awards.

In the nominations we have read about the fantastic work you all do for our service users and carers, and the support which you offer each other. We have read that every day, so many of you demonstrate our Trust values in action, with positive and respectful behaviours that ensure we are all working together for better mental health.

Nominations to the awards are now closed – you can find who has been nominated on each of the Award pages. Our shortlisting team are reviewing every nomination and the shortlist will be revealed soon.

How the awards work

The award categories have been chosen to keep the field as wide open as possible to ensure clinical and non-clinical teams and individuals from our wide range of services, localities and directorates, all have a fair chance at winning an award.

And the majority of awards categories are voted by the staff to ensure you feel these are very much your awards, and enable you to tell ‘our Trust’ what you think marks out individuals and teams as ‘excellent’.

The winner in each of the awards categories and the highly commended nominees will be revealed at a celebratory event at Trinity Park, Ipswich on 21 March 2019.
