The shortlist for this year’s Celebrating Success Awards has been announced.
This year once again saw an excellent response and with more than 450 nominations in total our judges had a difficult task selecting their shortlist.
The panel members were impressed with the outstanding quality of entries which made selecting a shortlist in each category exceedingly difficult and because of the high standard in all categories the decisions were incredibly tight with a number of nominations deserving recognition.
The Patients’ Award was once again a popular category and we are delighted that so many people who have received treatment from us have taken the time to commend both clinical and non-clinical staff.
It was inspiring to read the stories of staff that had gone the extra mile or transformed services for the benefit of all our patients and we would like to thank every person or team nominated.
Special congratulations must go to those mentioned below who shone through to make the shortlist. We would also like to thank the judging panel for all their hard work.
The shortlist, in alphabetical order, is:
Learning Disability Theatre team
Sexual Health Team
Cancer Services and Cancer Transformation team
Mortuary and Bereavement Services Team
Innovation and Service Improvement
Mums and Minds Service
Volunteer of the Year
Employee of the Year
The winner of the Chairman’s Award category will be announced on the night.
All shortlisted teams and individuals will be contacted in the next few days to arrange for pictures to be taken in preparation for the Celebration Ball which takes place on Friday, November 9, 2018 at The Empress Ballroom in Blackpool’s Winter Gardens.
