Service users and carers invited to reward staff for exceptional service and care

Staffawards Sml 2

Mental health service users, their families and carers are being invited to nominate staff and teams from Avon and Wiltshire Mental Health Partnership (AWP) NHS Trust who have provided exceptional care.
The annual AWP Staff Awards is now in its 8th year and celebrates the vital role staff play in providing treatment and support to those with mental health conditions.

There are 12 categories including Compassionate Care, Leading by Example and Clinical Excellence.

For 2018 there is also a new award - the Service User and Carer Choice award. This is exclusively for service users or carers to nominate an individual or a team from AWP who has really made a difference to them, going beyond what is required by their job and truly seeing things from a service user's perspective. This award will also be judged by service users and carers.

The Trust will also be presenting Long Service Awards to staff who have given 30 years' service to the NHS.

AWP's Chief Executive, Dr Hayley Richards, said: "We recognise that our staff play the most important role in supporting our service users, their families and carers. They are dedicated, compassionate and committed individuals who bring hope and make a real difference, every day.

"We want to celebrate them and their work and show how much they are valued. Please think about all the people you know who lead by example, who demonstrate passion and excellence, innovation and care, who go above and beyond whatever their role, and get nominating!"

If you would like to nominate a member of staff or a team, you can make your nomination by clicking here. Nominations close on Friday 31 August.
Nominees who are shortlisted will be invited to an evening of celebration on Friday 16 November.
