Manx Care is inviting members of the public to nominate their ‘People’s Champion’ as part of its first ever annual colleague award ceremony taking place next month.
The Care Awards are designed to recognise and reward the exceptional work that individuals and teams across Manx Care deliver to patients, service users and their families on a daily basis, and will follow a similar format to the award schemes typically seen in NHS Trusts across the UK. There will be ten Care Awards given out on the evening. Nine of those will be decided upon within Manx Care following nominations being made internally across the organisation, with the People’s Champion Award being nominated by members of the Island’s community.
The People’s Champion Award will be given to an individual or team that members of the public nominate for making a significant contribution to the delivery of health and social care on the Isle of Man. Judges are looking for someone who:
- makes a significant contribution to the delivery of services for Manx Care
- makes a real impact to patients, service users and their families in the care they deliver
- goes above and beyond to provide support to their service, or the wider organisation
Members of the public can put forward an individual or a team as their People’s Champion by sending an email to the Manx Care Advice and Liaison Service (MCALS) outlining who they are nominating, why they are nominating them, and the impact they have had on them. Nominations open today (Monday 16 January) and will close at 8am next Monday, 23 January. Emails should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
