Do you know a hospital hero who has gone the extra mile for you this year? Following one of the most challenging periods in the history of healthcare, Liverpool University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (LUHFT) is looking to the people of Liverpool to nominate a member of staff for a special award – the Patient’s Champion award.
The award will be presented at the Our Future Together Awards, a celebration of the outstanding achievements of staff from across the whole Trust - which incorporates Aintree University Hospital, Broadgreen Hospital, Royal Liverpool University Hospital and Liverpool University Dental Hospital.
These annual staff awards will recognise those who have delivered outstanding healthcare and shown exceptional commitment to providing the best possible support to patients and their families, always exhibiting LUHFT’s values of being caring, fair and innovative.
However only one award on the night, the Patient’s Champion award, is voted for by patients, their families, and members of the public.
Steve Warburton, Chief Executive at Liverpool University Hospitals, said: “We know from the thousands of social media messages and thank you cards we receive that our patients really appreciate the care we provide.
“This award is an opportunity for members of the public to celebrate the teams or individuals who made a real difference to their time in our hospitals.
“The COVID-19 pandemic has demonstrated just how vital our NHS is, and how exceptionally hard our staff work. We want the public to use this as chance to celebrate those who have made a real impact on the lives of our communities.”
Nominations for the Patient’s Champion award must be submitted by 5pm on Friday 10 September. The winner will be announced at an awards ceremony on Friday 3 December.
