Sherwood Forest Hospitals hero nominated for national award

Sherwood Forest Hospitals is proud to announce that a member of its Nottinghamshire Health Informatics Service (NHIS) IT team has been nominated for a national ‘Unsung Hero’ Award.

NHIS Second Line Engineer, Pete Fox, has been nominated for the ‘Every Day Hero’ award, which celebrates the hard work of non-medical NHS staff within four different disciplines including: Admin and Clerical, Ancillary, Corporate Functions and IT.

The IT Everyday Hero Award particularly recognises people who work in IT positions who truly go above and beyond their daily duties.

Pete said: “I feel honoured to have been recognised for this award. I really enjoy helping staff at Sherwood Forest Hospitals by making sure that they have the right technology to do their jobs efficiently. The support I get from other NHIS colleagues and the friendly culture at Sherwood Forest Hospitals just makes my job all the more easier and enjoyable. I wasn’t expecting to be nominated for an award, as to me I just get on and do my job and help people when they need it, but obviously people feel that I go above and beyond, which is quite humbling. I am looking forward to attending the awards night.”

The awards are split across 18 different awards across the categories, with the winners being announced at an awards ceremony held at The Hilton, Manchester on 1 March 2019.
