Make a Difference staff awards

The Make a Difference Awards is our monthly staff awards scheme that recognises and celebrates colleagues who go above and beyond to deliver great care for our patients and make a difference to our community and/or colleagues.

Staff who receive a nomination are awarded a Make a Difference badge and certificate to acknowledge their fantastic work, and all nominees are put forward for our annual Make a Difference awards ceremony, where our judging panels will pick one winner from every category who will be presented with a trophy and certificate on the awards night.

Our annual Make a Difference Awards ceremony took place on Thursday 23 March 2023. You can read about our winners here.

Patients, carers and our community are able to thank and celebrate a member of NELFT staff by nominating them for our Patient Leadership Award. This award celebrates a colleague, volunteer or involvement representative who truly puts the patient at the centre of all they do.

How to nominate a NELFT colleague for the Patient Leadership Award

Please complete this brief nomination form and tell us how our NELFT colleague demonstrates their commitment to care and how they put their patients and our community at the heart of everything they do. Once we receive your nomination we will let our colleague and their line manager know, and they will be put forward to our finalist judging panels to select our overall yearly winners.
