A star-studded night at the Albert Halls in Stirling saw staff collect a series of awards reflecting both their care for patients and their willingness to go the extra mile. This year’s local Staff Awards also had a special category in memory of former NHS Forth Valley HR Director Helen Kelly.
Top Team Award
This award is for teams which deliver an excellent service and provide a supportive environment which encourages staff to work together to drive forward developments and improvements.
This is for individuals who are an inspiration to others. They are outstanding in their role, lead by example and act with professionalism and integrity at all times. They are also approachable and supportive to colleagues and inspire them to develop and improve the services we provide.
Outstanding Care Award
This award gives members of staff, patients and their families the opportunity to nominate a member of staff, service or team who has delivered outstanding care and treatment.
For individuals, organisations, fundraisers or charities who work tirelessly and generously give their free time, enthusiasm and energy to help improve NHS services, facilities and support for patients, visitors and their families.
This award recognises the innovative and ambitious work undertaken by NHS staff to improve the quality, safety, efficiency and effectiveness of patient care in NHS Forth Valley. This could include the introduction of new ways of working, the development of new treatments, the use of new technology, the completion of new research or innovative resource management that has achieved financial savings.
Unsung Hero Award
This is the person who does a fantastic job but whose contribution and role often goes unrecognised. Although just doing their normal day-to-day job, this individual’s drive, commitment and support makes a genuine difference to others. This is the type of person who goes the extra mile and is always happy to help others.
This is for people who don’t necessarily fit into any of our main award categories but who demonstrate their values and deserve recognition for the contribution to their work.
Helen Kelly Memorial Award
This award is presented in memory of Helen Kelly who was our Director of HR. It recognises outstanding care, compassion and kindness towards either service users or colleagues.
