Star Awards

Star Award winners 2018

Young patients and their families are being invited to nominate their favourite doctors, nurses and more for a Children’s Star Award 2019.

Any child or young person who has received treatment from Sheffield Children’s NHS Foundation Trust services in 2018 can make a nomination before the end of January with the winner being announced in March.

The Sheffield Children’s Star Awards have been running for more than eight years, and each year children have awarded this special prize to staff who went the extra mile for them. The 2019 Star Awards are brought to us with the sponsorship of NHS Professionals. Colin McCready, CEO, NHS Professionals, said, “NHS Professionals is delighted to support the Star Awards as a way to recognise the exceptional staff who have gone the extra mile in supporting and caring for children and young people in Sheffield.”

Last year, the team award was awarded to Sheffield Eating Disorders Assessment and Treatment Team (SEDATT) and the individual’s Children’s Star Award was won by haematology nurse Louise George.

A parent’s nominated Louise saying:

“Louise was the first face that I saw minutes after my baby was diagnosed with thalassemia. Louise was sat waiting to meet us and she was so calming and reassuring. From being in a panic state I was now much more relaxed and ready for a long journey ahead… Louise even came out to see me at the family home to answer their questions. She went above and beyond her care and duty… She’s not only a Haematology nurse she’s our dearest friend.”

Another parent described their experience with the eating disorders team:

“They have walked my daughter through anorexia, from acute illness on Ward 3, time at Becton and being home so she can live a ‘well, full life with support’. They have walked with us with kindness and expertise. They never once forgot about us, but also gave us the freedom to have a go ourselves. They listened and challenged and have changed our lives. Thank you.”
