A new award to recognise the contribution of nurses who go above and beyond to help patients has been launched by Oxford Health.

The DAISY Awards is an international recognition programme that honours and celebrates the skilful and compassionate care provided by nurses and midwives each day.

Oxford Health employs around 2,000 nurses who are eligible to be nominated and, especially given the extra challenges the pandemic has brought over the last year, it is felt that now is a good time for Oxford Health to join the DAISY family.

 

“Nurses do what they do because they are hard working, caring and professional and the results of their efforts can be seen in the thousands of people who receive care from Oxford Health.

“The DAISY Award is an opportunity for patients to say thank you by sharing their story of how a nurse made a difference.

“DAISY has already been taken up by a number of NHS Trusts so has recognition across the profession Oxford Health believes that now, following the immense challenges that our nursing teams have risen to during the COVID-19 pandemic, is the perfect time to introduce and launch the awards.”
