Sue Sjuve, Royal Surrey’s Chair said: “This is a very special year for the NHS as we celebrate its 70th Anniversary.  Our Trust covers an area which serves over two million people and our dedicated staff deal with the increasing pressures on the NHS, 24 hours a day 365 days a year.

“The annual staff awards ceremony is our way of recognising the outstanding contribution made by individuals and teams, to patient care and healthcare excellence.

“The Patient’s Choice award is your chance to thank individual staff members or teams who have made a real difference to your life or that of a loved one.”

During the annual Surrey Stars award ceremony, the County Hospital recognises and celebrates all staff achievements, including staff based at Royal Surrey County Hospital in Guildford, and those providing adult community health services serving Guildford and Waverley based in a variety of locations including Haslemere Hospital, Milford Hospital, Cranleigh Hospital, District Nurses/community staff based at the Jarvis Centre Guildford and in East Horsley and Radiotherapy Unit based in Redhill.
