Exceptional People Award

Get involved

Help shape the services we provide and the experience
of our patients, carers, families and staff

We expect all of our staff to excel in what they do but every month we make a point of rewarding an individual who has made a real difference to you or someone you know.

You are welcome to nominate any member of staff at Oxford Health – perhaps the receptionist that always orders a taxi for you, or the housekeeping team that keeps the ward clean and welcoming? It could be your CPN or district nurse who has been to see you at home and been supportive and reassuring after a recent hospital admission. So, if someone has made a difference, however large or small we would love to hear about it, so please get in touch.

To nominate someone please download a nomination form. The rules for making a nomination are also downloadable.

Once completed please email the form to ExceptionalPeopleAward@oxfordhealth.nhs.uk
