|Less than one month to go before nominations close for local Patient Choice Award
Patients, carers and members of the public in Wigan Borough are being encouraged to get their nominations in by 31 December for Bridgewater Community Healthcare NHS Trust’s Patient Choice Award.
Bridgewater Community Healthcare NHS Trust (Bridgewater) provides local NHS services in clinics, health centres, patients’ homes and walk-in centres. The aim of the award is to help recognise the Trust staff who regularly go above and beyond for patients and their families and as a result make a big difference to their lives.
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.
