Patient Choice Awards

We are asking the most important people - our patients - to help us celebrate our fantastic staff by nominating their own health heroes at The Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital for one of two special Patient Choice Awards.

The Patient Choice Awards are to be presented at our Celebration of Achievement Awards, being held at the Lion Quays Hotel on Thursday 21 November 2019.

In the past we have asked our patients to nominate indivuals who have gone the extra mile to help them, and we are doing that again - but this year we have introduced a second category for teams as well.

We have some tremendous people, and some remarkable teams, here at RJAH. It is important that we take time out on occasions to recognise our achievements and our success, and that we celebrate them.

The Patient Choice Awards are two of 17 awards being presented on the night - but the only one where the nominees and winner will be chosen by our patients themselves.

We'd also like to thank Lanyon Bowdler Solicitors for sponsoring our Patient Choice Awards - we're extremely grateful for their support.


Why Patient Choice Awards?

“We want our patients to be involved in this process, which is why we  include this Patient Choice Award as part of the evening.

“I would ask any patient, past or present, who has used our services and been particularly struck by the care they received from one of our members of staff, to consider nominating them for this award.

“We will go through all the nominations and compile a shortlist – and give the public the chance to vote on that shortlist to select the winner.”

Mark Brandreth, Chief Executive, The Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital NHS Foundation Trust
