G.E.M Awards

The G.E.M (Going the Extra Mile) Awards celebrates and rewards individuals for their contributions to our NHS.  

After the success of the 2019 G.E.M recognition awards, which recognised our nursing and midwifery staff, we have expanded the awards to acknowledge the achievements of all staff groups.

Due to the extraordinary circumstances, we found ourselves in, so many bank members deserve recognition for going above and beyond, working in unfamiliar situations and their outstanding contributions to our NHS.  

This year the G.E.M Awards will therefore focus on the achievements of bank members during the pandemic.

  • Nominations open on 13th January 2021
  • Entries close on 26th February 2021
  • Winners will be announced by Friday 19th March 2021
  • Clinical judging by our Chief Nurse, Juliette Cosgrove and Responsible Officer, Helen McGill.
  • Non – clinical judging by Antony Law, Director of Non-clinical

Each winner will receive a £250 Amazon voucher and a runner up will receive a £100 Amazon voucher.

We want to recognise the incredible hard work and dedication of you, our bank members, so if you know someone who has continued to go above and beyond in their role, nominate them for a G.E.M Award below.
