Celebrating Success Staff Awards 2022

Celebrating Success logo - 2022.pngCelebrating Success is our awards scheme for staff and volunteers. It gives us an opportunity to acknowledge and celebrate the outstanding work of our staff and volunteers who provide high-quality community-based services aimed at supporting people to manage their own health at home and reducing the need for people to go into hospital.

We care for thousands of patients every day and these awards recognise the hard work that goes into preventing health problems from getting worse while compassionately caring for the people of Lincolnshire.


Celebrating Success 2022 nominations launch

In 2022, we have 11 categories. This includes Chair's Award which is decided by Elaine Baylis, our Chair and is not open for nominations. Unsung Hero Award and Team of The Year Award have an option for clinical and non-clinical colleagues. Please see below the list of categories and criteria.

This year members of the public, patient, and carers can nominate LCHS staff, teams and volunteers in two categories: People's Award and Volunteer of the Year Award.

Apart from your details and the details of the staff member, the team or the volunteer you're nominating we only ask you two questions: "Briefly outline why the individual or a team you are nominating should receive this award" and "How does your entry meet the criteria for the category you are entering".
