Would you like to thank a Healthcare hero?

Why not nominate them for a special ‘Thank You’ award?

Each year Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust recognises dedicated staff and volunteers with a special awards ceremony.

The Trust’s Thank You Awards, which has been running for 14 years, celebrates individuals and teams that go above and beyond the call of duty to care for patients.

In conjunction with The Sheffield Star newspaper, the Trust has included an award category called ‘The Healthcare Hero Award’ which gives members of the public the chance to nominate a staff member or team who have made a real difference, either in hospital or the community.

Shortlisted nominees will then be profiled in the Sheffield Star newspaper and readers will have the opportunity to vote for the winner.

If you would like to thank a member of staff or team at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals for making a difference to your care or the care of a loved one, nominate them now by visiting www.sth.nhs.uk/awards and completing the short nomination form. Don’t forget to select the ‘Healthcare Hero’ category.

The closing date for applications will be on the 7th July 2017.

In order to nominate:

• You must have the full name of the nominee and the department where they work
• You must be willing to come to the Northern General or Hallamshire Hospital to be briefly filmed for the award ceremony video
• You must be aware that if the nominee doesn’t consent to take part when we contact them, we will not be able to process your nomination

The Thank You Awards are kindly sponsored by Sheffield Hospitals Charity which is the official NHS charity that helps patients being treated for almost every condition across all the Sheffield Teaching Hospitals sites.

Last year’s winner

Last year’s winner was Eve Garret, a secretary in breast surgery.

Eve was nominated by a patient undergoing treatment for cancer, for making her feel at ease during her treatment.

Eve was praised for her excellent listening and organisational skills, which ensure patients, have all the information they need and reduces any worries.
