Last chance to nominate staff for health Trust’s Patients’ Award


Mr Andrew Duncan was one of our award winners last year.

We have had an excellent response to our Celebrating Success Awards 2017 and there is now just a week left to nominate your candidate for an award.

Entries will close at 5pm on Wednesday, June 21 and the application form will not be accessible after this time.

Outstanding NHS employees are honoured annually at the Trust’s Celebrating Success Awards ceremony – and we are asking patients, carers, relatives and members of the public to nominated staff who have gone above and beyond the call of duty to care for patients and their families.

The highly coveted Patients Award category attracted more than 100 nominations last year for teams and individuals working for the Trust. All nominated staff members get a certificate to acknowledge the work they do and the winning contender gets a cash prize to reinvest in their area of the Trust. The category is sponsored by legal firm Weightmans.

If you would like to nominate a member of Blackpool Teaching Hospitals staff from either the community or acute hospital who gave you, or someone in your family, an exceptional level of care – we’d love to hear from you.

You can nominate by contacting the Communications Office at Blackpool Teaching Hospitals on 01253 953059 or by writing to Communications Office, Home 15, Whinney Heys Road, Blackpool FY3 8NR and requesting a nomination form.

Alternatively forms can be filled in online by visiting the Trust’s website at

Nominations for the 2017 award close on Wednesday, June 21. The judging panel will meet on Wednesday, July 19.
