Nominations for our staff awards are now open!

In October we will be holding our annual staff awards event where we are able to recognise and celebrate fantastic staff achievements and hard work. The ceremony will take place at the DoubleTree Hotel at Stadium:MK.

This year we want to make the awards even bigger and better so have included new categories to enable more staff to be put forward. Nominations are now open so put your colleagues, your team and your ward or department forward! Patients, relatives and friends and family are also able to nominate staff – and there is even a dedicated category for patients to nominate those members of staff that have gone the extra mile to support their care.
