Patients across Surrey are being asked to shine a spotlight on healthcare heroes who have gone the extra mile.

Each year Royal Surrey County Hospital NHS Foundation Trust calls on patients, their carers and loved ones to recognise and say thank you to a staff member or team who has gone above and beyond.

All staff working for the Trust both in hospitals and in the community are eligible for the Patients’ Choice awards, which has become the most sought after prize at our annual staff awards ceremony.

Past winners have been described as a ‘beacon of hope,’ who have been recognised for their outstanding ‘kindness,’ ‘compassion’ and ‘understanding.’

Sue Sjuve, Chair, said: “Each year we hold our annual staff awards ceremony to recognise the outstanding contribution that is made by both individuals and teams across the Trust, as well as recognise healthcare excellence.

“The Patients’ Choice award gives our most important critics, the people and the community we serve, the chance to acknowledge a staff member or team who have made a real difference to their lives.”

Jacqui Tingle, was named Employee of the Year in 2018, she said: “Just being nominated gives you a tremendous amount of pride.

“It can really boost a person’s confidence and self-esteem to know that the difference they are making is so valued.”

The finalists will be invited to attend to the Royal Surrey Stars ceremony, compared by Eagle Radio’s Adam Morris and Matt Daines, on 27 November at the Harbour Hotel in Guildford.
