Sherwood Forest Hospitals hero wins national award

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

NHIS Second Line Engineer, Pete Fox, won 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 have truly gone above and beyond their daily duties.

Pete said: “I was so surprised to win and I feel honoured to have been recognised by this award. I wasn’t expecting to be nominated for an award, let alone win it, 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 would like to take this opportunity to thank my nominator for thinking of me and taking the time to nominate me, as well as my skilled and knowledgeable colleagues, including those who are sadly no longer with us, who have made it possible for me to get this award. There are so many unsung heroes in the NHS, who I think sometimes, go unrecognised, and I’d like to dedicate this award to them too.

“It was brilliant to attend the awards night and accept the award.”

The Unsung Hero Awards were 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.
