Staff and teams from across Lincolnshire’s hospitals have been recognised in a virtual Staff Awards ceremony for 2021.
After a delay due to the COVID-19 pandemic, United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust last night celebrated its Staff Awards virtually with around 300 staff.
Award winners and highly commended entries will receive trophies, certificates and prizes in recognition of their excellence following the virtual ceremony. This year a special award entitled the ‘COVID hero’ award was also presented.
The awards celebrate staff and teams who go above and beyond for their patients, recognising unsung heroes, those who demonstrate compassion and respect and those who innovate to benefit patients.
Chief Executive, Andrew Morgan said: “After the last two difficult years, it has been amazing to be able to celebrate and award so many teams and individuals from across ULHT. Everyone who has been nominated and shortlisted this year should be incredibly proud.
“We received over 700 nominations for people working across our hospitals in Lincolnshire. We have amazing staff working to care for the people of Lincolnshire and I would like to thank them all for everything they do day-in, day-out!’
Trust Chair, Elaine Baylis said: ‘In what has been an unprecedented couple of years for the NHS, it has been so great to read so many amazing nominations in this years’ awards. The amount of nominations we had overall is testament to the hard work and dedication shown and I want to congratulate all of the winners for their achievement.’
