Moorfields’ Stars of 2017 is open for nominations

Supported by Moorfields Eye Charity, Moorfields’ Stars is the annual staff award scheme for Moorfields Eye Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, celebrating the achievements of just some of the excellent staff and volunteers.

Moorfields’ Stars includes five competitive awards: Moorfields’ star of the year, Moorfields’ team of the year, the Moorfields Eye Charity award for innovation, the patient choice award, and the volunteer of the year award. Patients and volunteers are eligible to nominate in two of the award categories and we would love to get your nominations. The categories patients and volunteers can nominate in are:

The patient choice award

This award is open to patients (past and present), friends and family of patients, carers and foundation trust members to nominate a team or individual who has delivered exemplary patient care over the past 12 months. Your nominee(s) will have displayed behaviours and values that had a positive impact on your patient experience and demonstrated their commitment to going over and above to assist and support our patients.

Volunteer of the year award

This new award recognises those who volunteer at or for the benefit of Moorfields either directly or via one of the charities supporting the trust (Moorfields Eye Charity, Friends of Moorfields, the Thomas Pocklington Trust, East London Vision (ELVis) or Ronald McDonald House Moorfields). The volunteer or team of volunteers will have demonstrated one or more of The Moorfields Way commitments over the past 12 months and their commitment to go over and above to support the trust and our patients.

If you know somebody who deserves to be recognised for delivering exemplary patient care, or a team or individual who have gone over and above to support and assist you, make sure you nominate them in Moorfields’ Stars of 2017.
