One week left to vote for the winner of the Amazing Care Award 2018!

Posted on the 25th January 2018

People across Lancashire have submitted their nominations for this year’s brand new Amazing Care Award and there is now one week left for you to vote for who you think deserves to win!

The Amazing Care Award is one of many awards celebrated at Lancashire Care NHS Foundation Trust’s annual Staff Awards ceremony. The event is held to recognise all of the excellent examples of hard work and compassionate care delivered by health professionals across Lancashire.

This brand new category contains nominations made by members of the public who have nominated a team, individual or service who they feel should be recognised for providing amazing care. It’s often the little things that can make a big different to patients and their families and nominations should include examples of where this has been the case. This award is particularly special in that it is the only award where the winner is nominated and voted for solely by members of the public.

There is just one week to have your say on who should win until voting closes on 4 February 2018. This year’s winner will be announced at the ceremony at the De Vere Village Hotel in Blackpool on Friday 23 March 2018.

The following people have been shortlisted for the award and it is up to you to decide who should win:

• Burnley Mindsmatter Team

• Blackpool Criminal Justice Liaison and Diversion Team

• Zoe Yurek

• Home Outpatient Parenteral Antimicrobial Therapy (OPAT Service) - Community District Nurses

Dee Roach, Executive Director of Nursing and Quality at Lancashire Care NHS Foundation Trust said:

“The Amazing Care Award is a brand new award launching as part of this year’s staff awards. The award is particularly unique, in the fact that it is the only award of which the winner is chosen by the people in Lancashire. It is so important to us that we provide the people that we serve the opportunity to recognise an individual or team who has demonstrated excellent patient care and made their Lancashire Care experience a positive one.

“We are truly privileged to have so many kind and compassionate members of staff working here and we hope that people across the county who have received our care will take five minutes out of their time to vote for this year’s winner!”
