And they’re off!

The judging for the Trust’s Celebrating Success Awards is underway.

It’s going to be an enormously difficult task for the judges as the entries are of such a high standard and we’ve had a record-breaking number of nominations.

More than 500 entries have been received with more than 200 nominations from patients.

This year our judges are: Trust Chairman, Ian Johnson; Chief Executive, Wendy Swift; Staff Side representative, Barry Casey; Public Governor, Sue Crouch; Director of Nursing and Quality, Marie Thompson and Radio Wave Chairman, John Barnett and his wife Danielle.

The shortlist will be announced in due course and we’d like to say good luck to everyone who has been nominated.

Our judges have commented that the quality of nominations this year is exceptionally high and we are delighted so many people who have received treatment from us have taken the time to commend both clinical and non-clinical staff.

The success of this year’s entries proves the standard of care given by Blackpool Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is something to shout about and we thank everyone who has taken the time to put together a nomination.

The judging gets underway

While every effort has been made to ensure accuracy, we would ask staff to check nominee names and let the communications department know of any spelling errors by emailing

Winners and runners up for each award category will be announced at the Celebration Ball at the Winter Gardens on Friday, October 6th.

The winner of The Chairman’s Award will be presented to the individual or team the Chairman feels has made the most outstanding contribution.

The following staff members and teams (please see below) have been nominated this year for the Celebrating Success Awards.

Good luck everyone!
