Quality and Excellence Awards
Nominations for this year are now closed.
Our Quality and Excellence Awards are a chance for us to recognise and reward the excellent work that happens at EPUT every day. They are a chance for us to reward our rising stars, our outstanding volunteers, our exceptional leaders & teams, our heroes, our partners and those who have left a legacy.
This year, there are 18 award categories to choose from, and these align with our EPUT vision, values and strategic objectives. You can nominate anyone who has worked at EPUT between 1 March 2020 to 31 October 2022, whether as a permanent or temporary staff member, including bank staff and volunteers. There is also a category to specifically recognise our partners and collaborative working across organisational boundaries. If you’re not sure which category to choose, you can leave this section of the nomination form blank and your nomination will be entered into an appropriate category.
If you have received outstanding, compassionate care, we want to hear about it. We are looking for those who inspire and motivate others, those who champion dignity and respect, and those who stand up for equality and inclusion.
We have so many committed and dedicated colleagues and volunteers across EPUT. We are looking for people who demonstrate excellence and who embody our values in everything they do. If you know a person or team who deserves recognition for the outstanding care they provide, nominate them for a Quality and Excellence Award.
Take a look at the categories below, and nominate a person or team via the nomination form.
