Team NUH Awards

Our staff awards

We have over 18,000 staff and are passionate about celebrating and recognising their achievements.

Our Team NUH awards programme is open for nominations 365 days a year. 3 winning and 2 highly commended nominees in 8 categories are decided on three times a year (January, April and July) by an internal judging panel. The staff member(s) or team(s) who are voted for are presented with their awards in our hospitals throughout the year, we call these the quarterly rounds.

We then hold an annual ceremony in the autumn that all staff members and teams that have been awarded in the quarterly rounds are invited to attend and an external judging panel vote for one overall winner in each category. At the annual ceremony, we also announce our 'Volunteer of the Year' - nominations for which are also open all year round. 

Nominating our staff, or for staff to nominate their colleagues, can go a long way. It doesn't take long and you could really make a big impact by doing so. Please follow the instructions below, depending on whether you are a member of the public or a member of our staff.
