Rewarding our staff

Hidden Gem and Annual Gem Awards

We run monthly staff awards which celebrate staff that went the extra mile in delivering care and supporting their colleagues or who have delivered exceptional levels of work and continually demonstrate our core values.

Staff, patients and their friends and family can nominate CNWL staff for a Hidden Gem Award. Visit our staff awards page for more information.

We also have our very own Oscar-style annual awards ceremony for staff. Our Annual Gem Awards recognise and celebrate excellence across our whole Trust and we also celebrate our Long Service Award winners at the ceremony.

Our Annual Gem Award offer staff a chance to be recognised amongst their peers and to feel a sense of satisfaction and appreciation that their hard work has not gone unnoticed. Check out the nomination video for the Team of the year winner for the 2016 Annual Gems ceremony.

Long Service Award

We really value continued service to the NHS and formally recognise this at our Annual Gem Awards ceremony for people who have achieved continuous 20, 30 and 40 years NHS service. A £100 award is made for every 10 years of service.

Retirement gifts

Gifts are awarded to any member of staff who retire with more than 15 years continuous NHS service.
