Information about the 2017 nomination process

  • You can submit a nomination for an individual or team across a range of seven award categories covering everything from “Transforming Lives” to “Unsung heroes”
  • We’re keen to represent our diverse workforce, especially welcomed are nominations for black and minority ethnic (BME staff).
  • Service users and their carers will be able to nominate staff for two of the awards: ‘Kindness and caring’ and ‘Transforming lives’.
  • You can only nominate a team/individual for one award, so choose your category carefully.
  • You can nominate Trust staff employees only (i.e. paid employees of SLaM, those who have a trust employee number, not individuals who receive payment for a rewarded activity).

To make a nomination you need to answer these 2 questions, they are a key part of the judging process:

  • Q1 Tell us why you have chosen this Staff award category for your nomination (Maximum of 100 words).
  • Q2 We are looking for individuals or teams that really have gone the extra mile, tell us example(s) how you feel that they had done something over and above what would be expected from their role. (Maximum of 250 words).


Your response to these two questions can be copied and pasted from Microsoft Word to the online form
