Our nurses and midwives need your votes! It’s that time of the year when we celebrate those who go above and beyond to deliver the very best in care and compassion – with one outstanding individual being honoured with their name on a tram.
The Nurse and Midwife of the Year Awards, sponsored by NET, in association with Nottingham University Hospitals (NUH) NHS Trust and the Nottingham Post, ensure that these unsung heroes of the city are both recognised and rewarded.
One of the biggest occasions on the healthcare calendar, last year the competition attracted thousands of votes from members of the public.
In 2017, student nurse Christina O'Loughlin received the grand accolade of Nurse of the Year - and thousands since have seen her name displayed proudly on the side of one of the city’s trams.
Stephanie Moss-Pearce, NET Marketing Manager, said: “We can never over-estimate the incredible work being done day in day out by the dedicated and hard-working individuals of Nottingham’s hospitals
“It says everything about their professionalism that they never seek recognition, and that’s why it is always a huge pleasure for NET to support these awards and help showcase their achievements.
“The naming of the tram after the winner is a very special part of that process. It is a daily reminder of the ceaseless care delivered by our nurses and midwives.
“We hope everyone will get behind this opportunity to select who will be the next nurse or midwife to receive the honour.
NET is committed to being a major part of the care infrastructure in Nottingham and its dedicated hospital tram stop at the Queen’s Medical Centre is one of the busiest on the network.
“We’re always keen to celebrate the key role of those who make such a positive difference to our lives and now we want as many people as possible to vote to register their respect and gratitude to our wonderful nurses and midwives,
” Stephanie added.
Nominations will be open until Monday, March 19 and anyone can put their suggestion forward by filling in a form here.
A panel of experts will then narrow the entries down to three shortlisted entrants in each category, before a public vote decides the winner who will be named during a special awards ceremony on Tuesday, May 15, at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Nottingham.
