Remarkable finalists announced

15 August 2018


Our 2018 Remarkable People Awards finalists are being announced, with more than 30 finalists up for awards in 12 separate categories.

The awards, celebrating  dedication, innovation, professionalism, courtesy, caring and leadership, are held each year to recognise the outstanding efforts of teams and members of staff at the James Paget who have gone ‘above and beyond’ to provide exceptional service.

All of those shortlisted have already distinguished themselves, as they have been selected from more than 300 original nominations from patients, their family members, the public and staff at the hospital. Judging took place in July and was particularly hard in categories such as ‘Employee of the Year’, ‘Ward of the Year’ and ‘Team of the Year’.



This year will be slightly different in that finalists will not be aware of which award they have been shortlisted for until the night itself, keeping some suspense for those on the list.

We’d like to thank all those who took the time to make a nomination as there were some lovely comments about our hard-working staff.

There is also special recognition for the volunteers who assisted during the ‘Beast from the East’ bad weather conditions earlier in the year. We’d like to again say thank you to them for all their support in helping clear our site and transporting our staff to and from the hospital.

This year’s awards ceremony will take place at the Wherry Hotel in Oulton Broad in October.
