We’ve received more than 500 nominations so far for this year’s STAR Awards. The clock is ticking but there is still time for you to nominate your shining STAR!
Members of staff and the public can recognise their STARs by nominating at www.starawardstayside.scot.nhs.uk
Dundee Community Leg Ulcer Team won the Bronze Award in the Quality/Service Improvement Category last year.
Cathy Cook, community care and treatment services team leader spoke to us about winning the award and what it meant to the team.
Now in their third year, the STAR Awards celebrate the individuals, teams and services working within NHS Tayside that deliver outstanding patient care or go the extra mile in their job.
You can nominate your NHS Tayside STARs in six categories – Outstanding Individual (clinical), Outstanding Individual (non-clinical), Outstanding Team, Innovation in Practice, Quality/Service Improvement and Inspiring Educator.
The different award categories mean that staff working in all job roles across the organisation can be nominated, including frontline medical staff, those working in the community, our support service staff and those who work behind the scenes in our research labs, medical records or other ‘hidden’ departments who may not deal with patients on a day-to-day basis.
If you believe you know an unsung hero or team of heroes who have really gone that extra mile, it is quick and easy to nominate your own STAR at www.starawardstayside.scot.nhs.uk
Anyone who has difficulty accessing the website or who needs assistance to complete the nomination form can call 01382 632021.
Closing date for nominations is Friday, 1 March at 5pm.
Members of the public can also nominate their NHS Tayside STARs in the Outstanding Individual (clinical), Outstanding Individual (non-clinical) and Outstanding Team categories.
