Staff recognition

We pride ourselves in recognising the achievements of our staff and volunteers when they go over and above providing the best possible care to patients. Throughout the year we recognise staff through our Everyday Hero and Daisy award schemes and once a year we host our Excellence awards.

If you've received care above and beyond your expectations or if you want to recognise a member of staff who made a difference to your time in hospital as a patient, visitor or staff member, why not nominate them for one of our staff recognition awards.


Excellence Awards

Celebrating our excellent colleagues and volunteers- Nominations now open!

Our Excellence Awards is new for 2021 and replaces our Best Possible Care Awards. The awards will take place virtually again this year due to COVID and are supported by the Northamptonshire Health Charitable fund.

The awards celebrate the people and teams who make a real difference to the way we work and our patient care, regardless of where they work or volunteer in the hospital. If one of your colleagues or your team, or someone who has cared for you, has gone above and beyond to exceed expectations now is your chance to get them the recognition they deserve

Find out more and nominate here.


Everyday Hero Award

Do you want to say thankyou to a member of #TeamNGH who you think has gone above and beyond what might be expected of them?

Everyone who works in a hospital makes a difference. The NGH Everyday Hero Award has been created to recognise exceptional members of TeamNGH who have demonstrated compassionate care and thoughtfulness which goes above and beyond the usual within their role. The Everyday Hero Award, supported by NGH Health and Wellbeing, is open to clinical and non-clinical staff who has made a real difference in their role whether they work on a ward, in an office, or in our kitchens; whether their work involves patients, buildings or supplies. To nominate a hero from NGH visit our NGH Everyday Hero website or:


Our nurses and midwives are recognised through our DAISY Award.


The Daisy Award 

The Daisy Award is your opportunity to say thank you by sharing your story of how a nurse or midwife made a difference you will never forget. Each DAISY Award honoree will be recognised at a ceremony in her/his ward or department and will receive a DAISY Award pin, certificate and a hand-carved sculpture A Healer’s Touch.  To nominate an extraordinary nurse or midwife, download a nomination form and send it back to us by:
