Staff and teams at Isle of Wight NHS Trust are up for a number of prestigious healthcare awards after being shortlisted for eight over the past few weeks.

Director of Nursing, Midwifery and Allied Health Professionals, Juliet Pearce said: “I am incredibly proud of all our staff for getting the recognition they deserve. Everyone at our Trust has worked really hard during some exceptionally busy times to improve the quality of care and the support we provide to our island community. We wish them all our teams the very best.”

The Trust’s allied health professionals have been shortlisted for the Chief Allied Health Professional Awards in the AHP Workforce Transformation Award.

The organisation’s Patient Experience Team are finalists for this year's Patient Experience Network Awards in the Best Team category. The team have been shortlisted for their work in building and developing a team whilst changing our approach to complaint handling

Nursing teams have also been recognised for their efforts after being shortlisted in two categories for this year's Nursing Times Workforce Awards. They have been announced as finalists in the Best Employer for Staff Recognition and Engagement category for recognising the dedication and care island nurses provide for International Nurses Day. They have also been shortlisted in the Workforce Team of the Year category for their work to improve pre-apprenticeship career development at the Trust.
