Remarkable People 2019

Remarkable People 2019

Nominate your James Paget healthcare heroes


Each year the James Paget Remarkable People Awards recognise individuals and teams at the hospital for their exceptional service – and now we’re inviting you to make a nomination for our 2019 awards.

We’re looking to celebrate staff, teams, apprentices and volunteers that have made a significant difference to patients, or provided support to colleagues in offering the best possible care to those visiting our hospital.

If you’ve been a patient in the James Paget University Hospital over the past 12 months and were particularly impressed with a team or individual we want to hear from you.

If a member of staff made your stay or a friend or relative’s stay more comfortable by doing something particularly remarkable, or if you received exceptional service during an outpatient appointment and you’d like to see a staff member recognised for their efforts, then this is your opportunity.

Alternatively it could be that you work at the hospital and want to recognise the dedicated efforts of a colleague who has gone out of their way to improve patient care or who may have done something particularly special.

Our Remarkable People Awards celebrate dedication, innovation, professionalism, courtesy, caring and leadership, with 10 categories where nominations can be made including Ward of the Year, Employee of the Year, Volunteer of the Year, Apprentice of the Year and the Inspiration Award.

Also among the categories 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.

Two other awards - the Governors’ Award for Outstanding Service and the Chair and Chief Executive Commendation – are made at the discretion of the Governors, Chair and Chief Executive, so these categories are not open for public nominations.

Anna Hills, James Paget Chief Executive, said: “Our staff work hard throughout the year, often in challenging circumstances and through periods of high demand, saving lives and striving to provide good care to the thousands of patients who come through our doors.

“These awards aim to highlight the dedication of those who have made a difference, helping to implement real change for the better, providing outstanding care or providing strong leadership through difficult times.
“We want to recognise those who are truly remarkable, who have exceeded expectations, and gone above and beyond the remit of their day-to-day work, as the ceremony is a chance to say thank you and highlight their exceptional efforts.

“We welcome nominations from anyone who has visited or used our hospital’s services, so if you had a particularly good experience and want to thank a member of staff, a volunteer or a team at the Paget please take a few minutes to fill in an application form.”

The award categories are as follows:
• Ward of the Year
• Team of the Year - Clinical
• Team of the Year - Non-Clinical
• Employee of the Year
• Individual of the Year - Clinical
• Individual of the Year - Non-Clinical
• Inspiration Award
• Volunteer of the Year
• Apprentice of the Year
• EDP Gold ‘Patient Choice’ Award

The closing date for nominations in the 10 categories open for public voting is Friday 07 June 2019.

This year’s awards ceremony will take place at the Ocean Room in Gorleston in October.
