The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust is (TRFT) preparing to celebrate the continued dedication of its staff and their achievements at the PROUD Awards.

The staff PROUD Awards 2013 enables the trust to give special recognition to those staff that have gone above and beyond in their dedication and passion for their role, and the difference this makes to patients, families and staff.

Patients and services users of TRFT have the opportunity to take part in the nominations and are encouraged to give their valuable input into the nominations process.

They are able to nominate an individual or team who has shown outstanding compassion as part of the patient’s shining star award category. They can also nominate a volunteer as part of the volunteer of the year award, which will be awarded to a trust volunteer who goes above and beyond the standards expected of our volunteers to the benefit of the trust and the patients or service users.

Interim chief executive, Michael Morgan said: “We are immensely proud of the achievements of trust staff over the past year and believe that they do an outstanding job for the people of Rotherham.”

“I would encourage patients to take part in the nominations process if they feel a member of staff or trust volunteer, in their view, is deserving of being in the running for an award.”

Closing date for nominations is 31st August. To nominate simply fill in a nominations form online by visiting www.therotherhamft.nhs.uk. Those who do not have access to a computer can nominate by calling 01709 426458.
