The centre’s finalists are:

  • The day case hip team, led by Marco La Malfa and Gyorgy Lovasz, in the Innovation and Improvement category;
  • Head of nursing Elaine Bodle, in the Inspiring Leader category, for her work supporting colleagues;
  • The Circle Team, led by Alison Raven, in the Quality Champion category for their work  encouraging people to talk, support one another and to make improvements to the working environment and
  • Mandy Miller and Rebecca Clarke, in the Unsung Heroes category, for their work supporting patients and for their fundraising efforts for local and national charities.

Hospital director Steve Booker said: “I am very proud of my team. They encompass all that is great in healthcare, from clinical innovation to great leadership and dedication to the local community, and they put our patients at the centre of all they do.

“I am delighted the judges have recognised their dedication by putting them into the awards finals – and in my eyes each of them is already a winner.”

The winners will be announced at a special presentation at Lords Cricket Ground on Thursday 28th March.
