One week left to vote for your ‘GEM of GEMs’
24 March 2017

PATIENTS and the public have just one week left to vote for members of staff at Burton Hospitals who have ‘Gone the Extra Mile’ ahead of a prestigious awards ceremony.

Seventeen employees from across a range of departments at the Trust were presented with an internal ‘GEM’ award during the past 12 months.

They are all now in the running to be crowned the ‘GEM of GEMs’ and the public is being asked to vote for the winner.

The ‘GEMs’ include staff from across the Trust’s three sites - Queen’s Hospital, Samuel Johnson Community Hospital and Sir Robert Peel Community Hospital.

They were deemed to have gone above and beyond the call of duty to provide first-class care, reassurance and help to patients, their friends and family.

The overall winner will be revealed during the PRIDE Awards ceremony which will be held at Burton Albion’s Pirelli Stadium on Thursday, June 22. It will be the Trust’s thirteenth annual staff awards event.

Joy Borrington, Awards Coordinator, said: “The clock is ticking for patients, their friends and family to vote on who they believe should be awarded the Trust’s coveted ‘GEM of GEMs’ crown this year with just one week left before voting closes.

“The shortlist for the award is nothing less than exceptional and it is fair to say that this is one of the most prestigious awards that will be presented at the ceremony as the winner is decided by the communities that we care for and serve.

“So many of our employees go above and beyond the call of duty on a regular basis so to be chosen for a GEM award is a huge achievement in itself but to be chosen as the overall winner is a real honour. Patients are at the heart of everything we do at Burton Hospitals so your vote really does counts.”
