Celebrating Success Awards

Your chance to nominate an NHS hero

Every year, Blackpool Teaching Hospitals hold Celebrating Success Awards to reward and recognise the excellent care and treatment received by patients at the hospitals, clinics and health centres run by this Trust.

We hope you will nominate members of staff or teams who have given superb service to you or a loved one.  Every person nominated is recognised with a certificate and a personal citation to show their work has been credited.  To nominate, all you have to do is fill out the form by clicking the link below:

Celebrating Success nomination form.

If your nominee is successful in making the final shortlist, they will be invited to the awards ceremony in November, where the winner will receive £500 to be reinvested into their area of the Trust.

The Weightmans' Patients' Award is much loved within the organisation as it is voted for by the patients themselves and is seen by staff as one of the most prestigious categories of Celebrating Success.
