In July we held our annual celebration event for staff at AFC Bournemouth Vitality Stadium, it was a fantastic day attended by around 200 members of staff. The event began with the Dragons' Den final which showcased some of the exciting innovation projects that are happening around the Trust. After a delicious buffet we heard from the Retreat team who highlighted the amazing work of this service and the impact it has had for patients in the area. The final event of the day was the Better Every Day staff awards and all of the finalists demonstrated a true reflection of the commitment and passion of our staff.

After such an inspiring day we're excited to reopen nominations for this year. You can now nominate members of staff for quarterly awards in the following categories:

  • Excellence
  • Compassion
  • Expertise
  • Bank Worker Award

Nominations for the first quarterly awards are open until 6 December. Winners of each quarter will also go through to the long list for our next annual staff awards in July 2020.

Later in the year we will reopen the nominations for the annual categories which include Leadership and Management and Team of the Year.
