Do you know an absolute GEM?

If someone at the Trust has made you feel special, why not nominate them for our GEM (Going the Extra Mile) awards?

It’s a chance to let extra special people know they’re really appreciated. And if you tell us what special people do to improve your experiences at the Trust, we can try to make sure it happens all the time, in all our services.

Your nomination must:

  • relate to something that happened within the last three months
  • be based on your, or your family’s, personal experience
  • give the judges enough detail to decide on a winner. No more than four people a quarter (16 a year) will receive a GEM award, so they need to be extra special.

 You can nominate anyone from Burton Hospitals Foundation NHS Trust. This covers the Queen’s Hospital and the Treatment Centre in Burton Upon Trent, Samuel Johnson Community Hospital in Lichfield and Sir Robert Peel Community Hospital inTamworth. It doesn’t matter where the person works, what their role is (they could be a volunteer or work behind the scenes) or how you’ve come into contact with them (they could be a colleague or someone you’ve only spoken to on the phone). What matters is that they said or did something that made you feel especially good or impressed you.
