Hosted by BBC Look North’s Harry Gration, the event has 12 prizes up for grabs this year, covering staff in every role. The event is an opportunity to recognise those individuals and teams that go above and beyond, ensuring patients receive the highest quality of care when they come to hospital.
Suzy Brain England OBE, Chair of the Board at Doncaster and Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals, said: “These awards are one of our most important events of the year. We know that our staff make some outstanding contributions to healthcare every day and this is our opportunity to get together and celebrate these achievements, so they know that their efforts have not gone unnoticed.
“Each time I attend the ceremony, I am blown away and inspired by the remarkable stories of how members of Team DBTH have gone that extra mile to demonstrate that they care about our patients, about their colleagues and about the people of Doncaster and Bassetlaw.”
