NUHonours Awards showcase hospitals' finest

The shining stars of Nottingham's hospitals were celebrated at an awards ceremony this evening.

Hundreds of NHS staff turned out for the annual NUHonours Awards, which recognise the outstanding work of employees from Queen's Medical Centre (QMC), Nottingham City Hospital and Ropewalk House.

There were 15 categories this year celebrating all of Nottingham University Hospital's different staff groups, from doctors and nurses to those who work behind the scenes to keep the hospitals running.Categories ranged from Team of the Year, to Research and Innovation, and Community Champion. Our volunteers were also recognised with their own category.

Tracy Taylor, NUH's Chief Executive, said: "What a fantastic way to end my first month at NUH! It was an inspirational evening which showcased everything that is great about NUH and the NHS.

"Many congratulations to everyone who was nominated and shortlisted for awards, and of course to our winners.I am proud to be part of Team NUH."

"Thank you to the Nottingham Hospitals Charity and our individual awards sponsors for making these awards possible."

Held at the East Midlands Conference Centre at the University of Nottingham, the ceremony was funded by Nottingham Hospitals Charity and hosted by Nottingham Post Editor Mike Sassi.

This isthe 11th year the awards have been running and supported by the Nottingham Hospitals Charity and it was the biggest yet - with almost 1,000 people receiving nominations.

The ceremony featured a number of special guests. Teen racing driver Billy Monger, who was brought to the East Midlands Major Trauma Centre at QMC following a crash at Donington Park this summer was given a special award for his bravery by his clinical team. Billy, who lost both legs following the accident, was given a personalised Paul Smith wallet. Earlier in the day he made his first visit back to the hospital to show staff his progress.

 Also making an appearance was Chris Pointon, healthcare campaigner and husband of the late Dr Kate Granger. Kate and Chris launched the #hellomynameis campaign while she was suffering from cancer after they noticed that many of the healthcare staff treating her did not introduce themselves. Chris is continuing Kate's campaign work and currently taking the #hellomynameis message on a global tour.
