Who will you nominate in this year’s Poole Hospital Awards?

The Poole Hospital Awards, which recognises the achievements and work of staff, supporters, fundraisers and volunteers at the trust, is now open for nominations.

The public is encouraged to put forward a member of staff, volunteer or fundraiser who they believe goes above and beyond in their provision of care and delivery of service at the hospital.

An individual or a team can be selected in a number of categories including employer of the year, volunteer of the year and fundraiser of the year.

Nominees may be in a patient-facing role, such as a nurse, doctor, midwife or porter, or they may be someone who works behind the scenes and is essential to the smooth running of the hospital.

The event will take place on 17 May at AFC Bournemouth’s Vitality Stadium. The deadline for nominations is midnight on 5 March.

Dr Saskie Dorman, a consultant in palliative medicine at the hospital, won the employee of the year award at last year’s event and was one of the 200 members of staff nominated last year. “It was lovely to be given the award,” said Saskie.

“The most touching part was finding out that I’d been nominated, it was a huge surprise.

“At the event it was really humbling to hear stories about so many wonderful staff, volunteers and teams who work here, and it made me really proud to be a part of such a fantastic hospital.

“I was very moved and inspired to hear the nominations which reflect the highly skilled, compassionate, innovative care throughout the hospital.

"Sometimes we forget to let our colleagues know just how much we value their contribution. A nomination is one way to do just that.”

Chief executive Debbie Fleming said the awards are a great way to celebrate the staff, volunteers and fundraisers that go the extra mile.

“The last 12 months have been positive for the trust and each and every award given will be richly deserved by their recipients,” said Debbie.

“We’ve been boosted further by the recent news that the trust has attained a good rating from the CQC inspection and the awards are an ideal opportunity to recognise all the hard work that has gone in to achieving this.”
