Patients given chance to nominate NHS workers
Wednesday, 27 June 2012
NHS workers are set to receive more
staff recognition following the inception of the new Patient's Choice Award.
The honour is part of an annual staff awards scheme from the organisation that covers Cheltenham General Hospital and Gloucestershire Royal Hospital, according to the Gloucestershire Echo.
Thanks to the new initiative, patients can nominate any nurse, doctor, midwife or any other employee who has treated them.
Speaking to the newspaper, David Smith, director of HR and organisational development, said: "This new award aims to recognise individuals or groups whose commitment and dedication ensures that exceptional care is delivered to our patients."
Patients can submit a nomination by visiting the Gloshospitals.org.uk website.
Workers who are recognised by patients will be sure to benefit from a boost in morale, as recognition for the work of staff can be extremely rewarding.
Such feedback enables employees to understand the difference that their work makes and can help to increase enthusiasm./script>
