“If you have been cared for by any of our community health, mental health or learning disabilities services across children and families’ services, adult or older people’s services, please do take the time to nominate them.”

Nominations for Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust’s (LPT) annual Celebrating Excellence Awards are now open.

Patients, service users, carers, and staff can nominate people who work and volunteer across the Trust.

Angela Hillery, chief executive of LPT, said: “We are very proud of our staff and volunteers. These awards are an opportunity to recognise and thank our them for the outstanding commitment and compassionate care they demonstrate to the people who use our services across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland.

“If you have been cared for by any of our community health, mental health or learning disabilities services across children and families’ services, adult or older people’s services, please do take the time to nominate them.”

The following four categories are open to nominations from the public:

  • Delivering Exceptional Care Award
  • Volunteer of the Year Award
  • Unsung Hero of the Year (a special award presented by LPT’s CEO/chair)
  • Excellence in Patient or Service User Involvement Award


At last year’s Celebrating Excellence Awards two people were presented with the Delivering Exceptional Care Award after being nominated by a member of the public who witnessed their dedication to a mental health patient.

Other winners of previous Celebrating Excellence Awards include:

  • Mental health crisis team, who delivered 24/7 care during the pandemic by creating a successful central access point and an acute care liaison hub within the Leicester Hospital’s Emergency Department.
  • Specialist autism team, who developed a shared vision to ensure the service reflects the needs of autistic people and introduced a new text messaging service called ChatAutism, and developed an online area called Autism Space to support autistic young people and adults across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland.

Nominations are open until 5 pm on Monday 13 May 2024.
