|Bridgewater Community Healthcare NHS Trust launches a new Patient Choice Award
Patients, carers and members of the public in Ashton, Leigh and Wigan are being urged to nominate the unsung heroes in our local NHS clinics and health centres for a new award.
Bridgewater Community Healthcare NHS Trust (Bridgewater) has launched a Patient Choice Award to help recognise the staff in the Trust who have gone above and beyond and made a big difference to the lives of their patients and their families.
Anyone can nominate a Bridgewater staff member for the award by either filling in a Patient Choice Award form at their local clinic or health centre or by completing the online nomination form at www.bridgewater.nhs.uk/news/patientchoiceaward/.
Bridgewater’s Deputy Chief Executive Mike Treharne said:
“Our staff work tirelessly to deliver the best possible care for our patients and we want to make sure that we celebrate their continued efforts and hard work with the launch of this new Patient Choice Award.
“The award gives people in the local communities we serve the chance to tell us about the receptionists, health visitors, nurses, speech and language therapists, podiatrists and other Bridgewater staff who have provided them with exceptional care and support. Please nominate your Bridgewater community heroes now by visiting www.bridgewater.nhs.uk/news/patientchoiceaward/ or filling in a nomination form at your local health centre or clinic.”
Nominations close on 31 December 2013. Finalists will be shortlisted in early January 2014 and the winner will be announced at Bridgewater’s Staff Awards ceremony next March.
