Have your say

Calling all people whose stay in hospital was made much more bearable by a kind and helpful member of staff, who went out of their way to help you feel comfortable.

Nominations are needed from the public to celebrate the best staff at Doncaster and Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals.

The hospitals stage the awards evening every year to celebrate some of the great work that their teams of dedicated staff have done over the year.

There are 11 categories up for nomination this year, covering awards for staff in every role.

You can nominate a doctor, a nurse, a healthcare assistant or a service assistant. You might have met a particularly helpful receptionist, spoken to a booking clerk on the phone who went above their call of duty, or even just had a nice chat with a volunteer. The Trust would like to hear about them all.

Suzy Brain England, Chair of the Board at Doncaster and Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals, said: “These awards are one of our most important events of the year. We know that our staff make some outstanding contributions to healthcare every day and this is our opportunity to get together and celebrate these achievements so they know their efforts have not gone unnoticed.

“Each time I attend the ceremony I am blown away and inspired by the remarkable stories of how members of Team DBTH have gone that extra mile to show they care about our patients, about their colleagues and about the people of Doncaster and Bassetlaw.

“We don’t want any achievement to go unrecognised so if you’ve met someone exceptional at one of our hospitals, please submit a nomination.”

The nomination form can be found at www.dbth.nhs.uk/news/stars/.

If you would like to sponsor an award, please email dbth.comms@nhs.net to receive a sponsorship brochure. The deadline for submissions is June 26 and shortlists will be announced before the ceremony at the Keepmoat Stadium on September 20.
