More than 1100 nominations for Nottingham’s hospital heroes

It has been another record-breaking year for our annual Team NUH Awards as more than 1100 nominations have flooded in to honour staff at Nottingham’s hospitals.

More nominations than ever before have been received, all from patients, the public and fellow staff members who recognise the difference members of Team NUH have made to thousands of lives over the past year.

The nominations have been received across 16 categories, inspired by our new Team NUH values, including Compassion in Action, Inspiring Health and Wellbeing award and Respect and Inclusion for Everyone award.

The annual Team NUH Award ceremony recognised staff, teams and volunteers at Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust who have gone above and beyond for patients and colleagues, and are kindly sponsored by The Nottingham Hospitals Charity.

Barbara Cathcart, Chief Executive of Nottingham Hospitals Charity, said: “Thank you to everyone who has taken the time to nominate a member of staff or supporter of Nottingham’s hospitals for a Team NUH Award.

“These awards are one of our favourite times of year, when we are able to take the time to celebrate the amazing staff who do truly incredible things for their patients, as well as the supporters who fundraise for our hospitals. We look forward to reading the nominations!”

One of the nominations in the Chairman’s Award was received by Pamela Doherty, Matron Ambulatory Care Pathway. Her nominator said: “Pam has worked in the Trust for over 35 years and has received her long service award. As a midwife Pam delivered over 2000 babies in 25 years.

“Pam is now currently working as a matron with the Ambulatory Care Pathway. Pam initiated the ‘All about you’ sessions which is a health and wellbeing session that supports staff, builds confidence, promotes the Trusts values and behaviours and encourages team work. Pam is a role model, patient advocate, caring and empathetic nurse.”
