The Southern Health and Social Care Trust has launched the Excellence Awards for 2017 and is asking for members of the public to play their part and nominate a member of staff who has made a big difference to their lives for the People’s Choice Award.

Siobhan Rooney, a non-executive director with the Trust, and chair of the Excellence Awards committee, said, “The staff excellence awards recognise those staff who make such a difference to patients and clients by going that extra mile.

She added, “The People’s Choice award is for Trust employees who have demonstrated to a patient, client or relative exceptional care – maybe kindness, professional expertise or expert care which has made a difference in their life.”

The judges will be particularly looking for evidence of:
• Putting the safety, needs and welfare of service users first
• Ensuring service users feel valued and cared for
• Treating service users with respect, dignity and compassion
