Our O.S.C.A.R.S Staff Awards

Every year, our Partnership holds a staff awards ceremony to recognise the vital contributions of the people who work here.  We encourage staff to nominate each other for a variety of awards as a way of celebrating all our staff and of thanking those whose work has been extraordinary.

Recognising the good work that our teams do is a wonderful way not only to say thank you to them, but to also encourage excellent care across our Partnership.
