Staff Awards

Shortlist announced

We’ve launched our flagship annual staff awards where we recognise and celebrate the very best examples of our teams going the extra mile to care for our patients.

Thank you to everyone who made a nomination to recognise excellent care from a member of our team or fantastic service from a colleague. Judging is complete and shortlisted nominees for each category are listed in alphabetical order below—winners will be announced at the Staff Awards event in October.


Our staff awards are supported by CW+ who bring together clinical innovations, pioneering research, art and design to make the hospital experience and environment better for our patients, their families, and our staff. Find out more about their work at
