Our People Awards

Our People Awards logo

We think our staff are brilliant. Every day our people and teams do amazing things to care for the people who use our services, support and look after each other, encourage their colleagues to develop and grow, to improve our working environment and to make people smile. Now’s your chance to recognise their hard work and compassion by nominating them for an award.

The Our People’s Choice Award is awarded annually. If you have received excellent care, service with a smile, kindness and understanding or exceptional service from one of our people or our teams why not nominate them for Our People’s Choice Award.

Nominations are open from January to December. Our judges will shortlist all nominations received in January and there will be a public vote to choose the winner from the shortlisted finalists. The winner will be announced at our annual celebration event in May.

Nominate for Our People’s Choice Award today.
