People's Choice Awards

Once a year, our staff, together with the general public, are asked to nominate their RD&E champions for the annual People's Choice Awards and then vote for who they think should win. This gives colleagues and service users an even greater say in recognising and awarding excellence at the Trust and share people's success far and wide.


The categories celebrate staff, both clinical and non-clinical, who champion the Trust’s special qualities of care and compassion, teamwork and a commitment to continuous improvement. These make the RD&E a particularly special place according to hundreds of staff surveyed in 2017, and form a core part of our Trust objectives and new Corporate Strategy.


The categories

Getting involved is easy

  1. Nominate: complete a People’s Choice Nomination Form (nominations for the next People's Choice Award will open in March 2020) 
  2. Submit: send your form to your department/division office (patients/carers can hand the form to a member of staff on their ward/department)
  3. Vote: have your say about who wins by voting

Choosing the winners

A staff and governor panel (representing RD&E employees and the general public) shortlists the finalists and the winners are then decided in a public vote in May/June each year.


The winners are then be announced at a special Extraordinary People Celebration in the summer and widely publicized thereafter.
