Nominations Welcomed For Patient Choice Award

Patients are being invited to help reward those healthcare staff who have gone the extra mile and made their hospital experience a pleasant and positive one.

Mid Cheshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (MCHFT) is encouraging those who have benefitted from the kindness and hard work of hospital staff to put them forward for the Patient Choice Award as part of the Trust’s annual Celebration of Achievement event.

Patients, relatives, visitors and carers are all eligible to nominate individuals or teams from Leighton Hospital in Crewe, Victoria Infirmary in Northwich or Elmhurst Intermediate Care Centre in Winsford for the award.  The sponsored event recognises the achievements of staff, celebrating the benefits that their work brings to the quality, safety and experience of patients.

Tracy Bullock, Chief Executive at MCHFT, said: “The Patient Choice Award is a great opportunity for our patients, their families and the local population to acknowledge the members of staff here who have provided brilliant care and unwavering support.

“Our staff work extremely hard to deliver the best possible experience for all those who use our services.  I know from the high number of compliments that we receive that the positive attitude of our staff makes a real difference to patients, and I would encourage anybody who has experienced this to submit a nomination to help us to further recognise this good practice.”

Nominating a member of staff for this award is quick and easy to do, using one of the following methods:

  • Complete one of the printed nomination forms available at various locations around the Trust and return it to the designated Celebration of Achievement post box at Leighton Hospital (located in the Main Entrance). Alternatively, hand the completed nomination in to any Reception desk or use the Freepost address given on the form;
  • Complete an online version of the form at www.mcht.nhs.uk/patientchoice;
  • Email celebrate@mcht.nhs.uk with your nominee’s name and department and the reason why you are nominating them.


The deadline for the receipt of nominations is Tuesday, June 30, 2015.  The winner will be announced at the Trust’s Celebration of Achievement event later in the year.
