Say thank you to Addenbrooke’s and the Rosie staff by nominating to our Public Choice Award 2024 with Cambridge University Hospitals





Do you know a member of staff or a team at Cambridge University Hospitals (CUH) who has gone the extra mile and delivered exemplary care?

It is time once again to nominate individuals or teams working at Addenbrooke’s, The Rosie or other CUH sites for our Public Choice award.

We have teamed up with hospital trust for the third year to invite nominations for the category, which will form part of the CUH Annual Awards.

The awards recognise and celebrate teams and individuals whose care, commitment and compassion have shone through for patients, colleagues and the wider community.

The Public Choice Award gives our readers the chance to recognise those people who made a difference to the care and treatment they’ve received.

A panel of judges looks forward to hearing your stories of kindness, compassion and expertise.

To nominate, fill in the simple form below.

There is the opportunity to include a message that will be passed to staff.

Ian Walker, director of corporate affairs at CUH, said: “We really value our Public Choice award partnership with the Cambridge Independent, and we’re very grateful for their continued support for our awards programme.

“I’d like to thank readers for taking the time to share their personal experiences of care in our hospitals. Over the last two years we’ve been incredibly moved by the many stories of kind, compassionate and expert care.

“These stories have really helped to remind our amazing staff, who work so hard every day, how valued and appreciated they are by patients and families from all over our region, and further afield.

“Please take a few minutes to submit a nomination to recognise an individual or a team at Addenbrooke’s, The Rosie or one of our other sites. Hearing your stories really does make a huge difference to our staff.”

Paul Brackley, editor of the Cambridge Independent, added: "We are delighted to team up with Cambridge University Hospitals for the Public Choice Award again this year. We know our readers really value the opportunity to say thank you and show their appreciation for the dedication, care and expertise they, or their loved ones, have experienced at Addenbrooke's, The Rosie and other CUH sites. We have been greatly moved by the nominations we have received in the last two years.

“As before, your messages will all be passed on, so that our hard-working NHS staff know how valued they are by those in our communities.”

Last year, the award went to the specialist haemoglobinopathy team at CUH for the outstanding care and support they provide for the sickle cell community in the East of England.

Martin Besser, consultant in haematology, said: “I am very proud to be a part of the specialist haemoglobinopathy team. We have a dedicated and talented team, absolutely committed to providing care and support for the sickle cell community in the East of England.

“We love what we do, and being recognised by our patients in the Public Choice Award last year meant a lot to us.

“The Public Choice Award is so important – getting feedback from patients on the many innovations, large and small, that our tireless teams are implementing to make the biggest difference to care.

“Anyone can be recognised for the contribution they make, regardless of their job role. It encourages us all to never stop innovating when we see the ways in which we can improve patient care and experience.”

The Cambridge Independent and CUH will judge the entries to the Public Choice Award once nominations close in June.

CUH is planning celebratory events for all staff nominated to this award, and the internal awards categories, in July. A special awards ceremony for the finalists will then be held in November in Cambridge.
