The Royal Free London’s annual staff awards, the outstanding staff contribution and rewards (Oscars), are now open for nominations.

The Oscars awards aim to recognise individuals, teams or services that have made an exceptional contribution to the trust and an outstanding difference to the care and wellbeing of our patients, their carers or our staff during 2016. 

The Oscars are made possible by the generosity of the Royal Free Charity and held on an annual basis. The 2016/17 awards will take place on 16 February 2017.

Staff, patients and their carers can nominate individuals, teams or services for the awards, choosing from one of nine categories:

  1. Clinician of the year award

  4. Improvement and innovation award
  5. Outstanding contribution to education award
  6. Outstanding contribution to patient safety award
  7. Volunteer of the year award
