Nomination form - Volunteer of the Year Award

Volunteers are vital and valued members of Team NUH. Over 1200 volunteers provide a wide-range of support across different wards, departments and services in our hospitals and are often the first point of contact for patients when they arrive. They support our staff too, and their help makes a big difference. That's why we've launched an award especially for them!

The Volunteer of the Year Award celebrates our volunteers who have gone the extra mile. Nominations can be submitted by both patients and staff for any of our volunteers throughout the year. A shortlist is then chosen by an external judging panel before the Volunteer of the Year is announced at our annual awards ceremony in the autumn. 

Tell us why your chosen Volunteer or team of Volunteers should win the Volunteer of the Year Award by completing the quick form below.

You must read the 'What we do with your information' section before submitting your form.
