Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust has launched its staff awards to recognise and celebrate the achievements of its 15,000 employees. The public of Leeds and Yorkshire are invited to get involved by nominating their hospital hero for an Unsung Hero award.

Sponsored by the Leeds Teaching Hospitals Charitable Foundation, the Trust’s Time to Shine awards provide the opportunity for teams across the city’s hospitals to receive recognition for their work.

Chief Executive, Julian Hartley, said: “We believe we have exceptional staff here at Leeds Teaching Hospitals, many of whom go the extra mile on a daily basis. They are our unsung heroes and we often feel humbled by their selfless dedication to their work and to our patients.”

“Through our Time to Shine Awards we’d love our patients their families and the community of Leeds to nominate a deserving member of our staff for our unsung hero award on our website.”
