The Everyone Matters Awards 2015 will celebrate the contribution that employees, as individuals and teams, have made to the service.
Brought to you by The Tameside NHS Trust, the award ceremony will take place on Thursday 2nd July 2015 at the Village Hotel, Ashton-Under-Lyne and be hosted by Andy Crane.
The awards are free to enter and will celebrate significant contributions made to improving the health and wellbeing of patients and staff, recognising individuals who have shown exceptional quality above and beyond what is expected and teams that have demonstrated improvements in working practices that have, or will benefit patients.
The awards will be judged by a panel made up of internal and external representatives, the judging is a two-stage process including pre-scoring to determine shortlists and a judging session where shortlists will be asked to make a formal presentation of entries for the judges to decide the winning entries.
The call for entries will commence Monday 9 March and close on Friday 8 May. The judging panel will take place on 9 June for the judges to decide the shortlist which will be announced on 10 June. Winners will be announced at the event.
