Today the Free Press launches its search for unsung health heroes who consistently go above and beyond the call of duty to care for hospital patients across the borough.
We have once again teamed up with health chiefs to stage the Doncaster and Bassetlaw Hospitals NHS Staff Awards.
This year there will be a total of 12 awards up for grabs, with each category designed to recognise just some of the great work that goes on across the trust’s hospitals including Doncaster Royal Infirmary, Mexborough Montagu and Bassetlaw. And we will also be giving you, our readers, the chance to vote for the night’s biggest prize of Overall Star of the Year. So whether it’s a nurse who has picked you up when you were feeling at your lowest, or a receptionist who always delivers service with a smile, we want you to nominate those workers who really deserve recognition. Mike Pinkerton, chief executive at Doncaster and Bassetlaw Hospitals (pictured) said: “These awards offer you the opportunity to nominate your local hero or heroine from the individuals, teams or departments at DBH that you feel are deserving of an award. I have many reasons to be proud to work for Team DBH and seeing the hard work, dedication and commitment from our staff to our patients on a daily basis is a big reason for us all to be proud. These awards are all about DBH staff and the recognition you deserve for the work they do each day.”
All you need to do to send in your nominations is visit www.dbh.nhs.uk/2015_annual_staff_awards_nominations.aspx or call Julie Taylor on 01302 647224.
The deadline for nominations is Wednesday, July 15.
The winners will be announced at a glittering ceremony on September 17 at Doncaster Racecourse.
