Patients and relatives asked to nominate their hospital & healthcare heroes in the first Northern Care Alliance Staff Awards

SALFORD Royal, The Royal Oldham Hospital, Fairfield General Hospital, Rochdale Infirmary and North Manchester General Hospital are asking the public to nominate their NHS heroes as part of an annual staff awards event.

This is the first Northern Care Alliance Group-wide Staff Awards event which will bring together staff from the Salford, Oldham, Bury & Rochdale and North Manchester Care Organisations, which are run as part of the Northern Care Alliance NHS Group (Salford Royal and Pennine Acute Trusts).

If you or a relative have had amazing treatment at Salford Royal and its integrated health and social care services, The Royal Oldham Hospital, North Manchester General Hospital, Fairfield General Hospital, Rochdale Infirmary and its community and social care services, or if you or your family want to thank a particular doctor, nurse, support worker, or ward that did their best to treat and look after you, then this is your chance.

The Patients’ Choice Award gives you the opportunity to say ‘thank you’ and publicly recognise the outstanding care and treatment given to either you, a relative or close friend. The Care Organisation executive teams will select four finalists for each Care Organisation and it will then be over to members of the public to choose the overall winners via an online vote.

You can nominate a staff member, clinical or non-clinical, by submitting an online nomination form.
