KMPT Awards 2020

It’s time for the KMPT Awards 2020! With a total of 19 categories to choose from this year, we’re sure you’ll find something for a team or person who should be nominated for their outstanding contribution.

We value brilliant care, and know that we have so many brilliant people working tirelessly to achieve our strategy and goals as an organisation. That’s why we are introducing some new awards this year, to further recognise all areas of the trust. The new awards include; Administrator of the Year, Digital Inspiration, Year of the Nurse and Lifelong achievement.

To mark the Year of the Nurse, we are going to have a special category this year to recognise and celebrate a member of our nursing team who is truly remarkable and encapsulates the KMPT values. Although our plans for celebrating this year were not able to go ahead as we wished, we hope that this moment of recognition shows the importance and appreciation that our nursing staff deserve, particularly during this year!  

We have also added the Administrator of the Year, an award dedicated to identifying an Administrator who constantly goes above and beyond in their role; and the Digital Inspiration Award which is for a person or team who has developed and embedded the use of new or existing technologies into their service to increase improvement and efficiency.  

Our final new category if for Lifelong achievement. This award provides us with the opportunity to highlight the life’s work of one of our current or past employees, who has shown true dedicated to the NHS and in their field of expertise. We want to use this as a moment to truly recognise the impact that someone can have through their outstanding work. Criteria for this award will be announced shortly.
