Mentor of the Year

This person can be any member of the nursing and midwifery workforce - they do not have to be a formal mentor, but someone who constantly nurtures and empowers others around them to be better nurses or midwives. They push and pull us to deliver our best.

This year, we have also decided to include a number of awards which focus on promoting our values, as it is important that we are rewarding those who are doing attempting to make positive changes in our organisation, these awards are: Valuing and promoting diversity, Living our Values and the Going above and beyond award.

We also want to award those who have made a concerted effort to either learn new skills and progress and develop in their role, and those who have helped others to do this. This is why we have created our Rising star, Student of the year and Most supportive nurse/midwife/HCA categories.
