Has a member of our nursing or midwifery teams looking after you or a relative given exceptional care? Ashford and St Peter’s Hospitals is asking for patient and public nominations for NHS England’s Surrey & Sussex Proud to Care awards 2014.

Chief Nurse at the Trust Suzanne Rankin explains more: “Here at Ashford and St Peter’s I am extremely proud of the care given by my large team of nurses, midwives and health care assistants. Now we are asking for your help to recognise those who go above and beyond to give our patients really exceptional care. This new regional awards scheme, which is being run by NHS England, will publically recognise nursing staff from across Surrey and Sussex across a number of categories. If one of our team has given exceptional care to you or a family member why not nominate them for the Public Choice Award?”

Nominations can be made by members of the public for the Public Choice category; for more information and to make a nomination go to: www.england.nhs.uk/south/south/ss-at/. Nominations close on 20th January 2014.
