Staff Recognition

Recognising the achievements of the staff who make Sherwood Forest Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust special is important to us. We believe in recognising and celebrating those members of staff that go the extra mile to ensure that our patients receive outstanding care.

Every year we hold our awards ceremony evening – Staff Excellence Awards - where we recognise and celebrate our colleagues and teams from across the Trust, who, throughout the year, have gone above and beyond in their role and contributed to excellent patient care.

We also hold our Chief Nurse Awards each summer, which give us the opportunity to celebrate our amazing nurses, midwives, allied health professionals, health care support workers and students who have gone the extra mile.

The Trust operates an internal monthly awards scheme called Star of the Month, where staff can nominate a colleague or team that has gone above what is expected of them in their role. Winners are presented with a certificate and a pin badge by the Chief Executive, Richard Mitchell.

We also host regular ceremonies to celebrate dedicated long-serving staff who have been with the Trust 5, 10, 20 years and more.
