2016 NUHonours Awards

Staff from Nottingham's hospitals were recognised tonight at an annual awards ceremony – with the hospitals' Youth Service among the big winners.

Held at the East Midlands Conference Centre, The NUHonours awards were held by Nottingham University Hospitals (NUH) NHS Trust, which runs the Queen's Medical Centre, City Hospital and Ropewalk House.

This year's awards are split into 14 different categories, ranging from the 'Team of the Year' award to the 'Nottingham Hospitals Charity Champion' award.

And winners in two of the categories were both related to the NUH Youth Service – with Youth Development Worker Terrence Green chosen as winner of the 'Behind the Scenes' award, and the NUH youth forum 'Young People 4 Change' winners of the 'Patient Champion' award.

The double triumph concluded what’s been a big few days of recognition for the youth service – as several members of the team also travelled to London earlier in the week to attend a national awards ceremony, after they were shortlisted for Children and Young People Now awards!

Terrence Green was nominated for the 'Behind the Scenes Award' for going above and beyond in his efforts to support young people being treated by NUH's services – in particular a young patient who he has given confidence by encouraging her to write.

He said: "I feel ecstatic, proud and stunned. It's an amazing feeling. I really didn't think I was going to win. "I feel really honoured - I'd like to say massive thank you to my team for their support and camaraderie."


The NUHonours awards are now in their tenth year, and are only possible through the support of the Nottingham Hospitals Charity. This year more than 650 nominations were received, with the 14 categories judged by staff and patient representatives.

NUH Chief Executive Peter Homa said: "These awards are one of the many ways in which we recognise the exceptional contributions and hard work and commitment of our staff and volunteers throughout the year. Very many congratulations to those who have been shortlisted on this tremendous achievement."

Wednesday's edition of the Nottingham Post will include a special 20-page supplement with profiles of all of the staff members and teams who were nominated for this year's NUHonours – make sure you don’t miss it!
