About the awards

Manx Care will hold its annual colleague recognition event on Thursday 8 February 2024. This will celebrate Manx Care's employees, and will bring together all of the different ways in which we recognise our colleagues across the course of a calendar year.

The event will take place in the evening, and will follow a similar format to a UK NHS Trust annual recognition ceremony.

Colleagues will be able to nominate individuals or teams across eight different categories, with two awards being chosen by the Chairman and CEO respectively and nominations for the final award, being invited from members of the public. Colleagues will then be able to nominate their winner from a shortlist.

The award categories will be sponsored by organisations from the private sector. The individual categories are outlined below:

Awards categories

  • The Quality and Safety Award - sponsored by Tooms Building Contractors Ltd

  • The Championing Excellence and Innovation Award - sponsored by Synaptik

  • The Driving Integration of Care Award - sponsored by Greenlight TV

  • The Engagement and Inclusion Award - sponsored by Exceed Business Services

  • The Partnerships and Collaboration Award - sponsored by TopCare Nursing & Domiciliary Care Agency

  • The Health and Care Sustainability Award – Best Energy Solutions Ltd

  • The Unsung Hero (Clinical and Non- Clinical) Awards - sponsored by Karsons Pharmacy

  • The Health and Care Professional of the Year Award - sponsored by Aston International

  • The CEO’s Outstanding Achievement Award - sponsored by Ontex Healthcare UK

  • The Andrew Foster CBE Award - sponsored by Lloyds Bank International

Furthermore, Manx Care would like to acknowledge Welcome Drinks sponsor, Clinisys, and Print sponsor BHW Print Group, for also contributing to the special evening.


  • Nominations will be assessed against Manx Care’s new CARE Values, as well as criteria specific to each award

  • Written nominations must be submitted using a dedicated form – it should be of substantial detail in order to make an informed decision. Nominations are only as good as the quality of the information the judges receive!

  • Primarily, the judges will be looking for good examples of dedication above and beyond the call of duty, and innovation or flair that has led to improvements in the delivery of services

  • Anyone nominating an individual or team should make them aware of this before submitting the nomination. Given that the event will be publicised, they should be comfortable to receive a level of publicity should they be shortlisted or win their category  

  • Teams are able to nominate themselves; similarly a nominator can be a member of the team they are nominating. However, self-nominations on an individual basis are not permitted

  • The judging panel reserves the right to re-allocate an application into a different category if they think it has a greater chance of success to the one originally nominated for

  • It will not be possible to return nomination forms so copies should be made prior to submission

Eligibility and restrictions

  • Anyone employed within Manx Care can be nominated (including fulltime, part-time or Bank colleagues), from across the organisation – this includes both front-line colleagues and those working in non-patient-facing roles

  • They can be working at any level of the organisation (it does not matter whether they are a senior leader or not)

  • It does not matter whether your nominee works in front-line care, behind the scenes or is involved in work that helps to motivate or train colleagues. The nomination simply needs to in some way illustrate how that person/team contributes towards the aims of the wider organisation and meets the CARE Values

  • You cannot nominate a person/team in more than one category for the same piece of work, or if they have received an award for the work previously.

  • Depending on the category of the award, individuals and teams may be nominated by:

    • A colleague or manager
    • A member of the public
    • A patient
    • A member of their team
    • An official Manx Care volunteer


The judging panel will comprise Manx Care’s Executive Leadership Team and Non-Executive Directors. This will be chaired by Sarah Pinch in her capacity as Manx Care’s Vice Chair, and Chair of the People Committee, a sub-committee of the Manx Care Board.

Meet the judges.
