“Our Outstanding Patient Experience Award is particularly special as it is a chance for patients to say thank you and it means a lot to the staff who are nominated to know that their work has made a real difference.

“If you have received excellent treatment or support at QVH in the last 12 months I would encourage you to consider nominating.”

People can nominate someone in a couple of minutes via this online form.

A QVH spokesperson said: “If you can’t remember the full name of the person you want to choose please give as much detail as you can – what they looked like, their job etc.
