Junior Doctor Awards Logo.pngThe awards are an annual opportunity to recognise and celebrate the crucial role that the 400+ junior doctors at HHFT play in providing excellent care to our patients every day.

A junior doctor is a doctor who has completed medical school but has not yet become a consultant or GP -  some junior doctors are in their first year of working, whilst others have many years of experience!

How do I make a nomination?

To nominate one of our colleagues, please fill in the online nomination form provided. The reason you provide for nominating should be at least 200 words and will be used by our judges to select a winner!


Who can make a nomination?

Anyone can: if you're a patient or family member, or you work with HHFT, if you know a junior doctor who deserves special recognition then nominate away!


Can I nominate multiple colleagues?

Absolutely, we welcome nominations for all of our wonderful colleagues who you think deserve special recognition! It's important to note that our judging processes are based on quality, not quantity, so multiple nominations for the same colleague won't increase their chances of winning.


Is my nomination anonymous?

When making a nomination, the option is given to keep nominations anonymous if you would rather your nominee didn't know who nominated them.


What if I don't know some details about my nominee?

Try your best to find out the details the nomination form asks for, but if there is a detail you aren't sure on, we'll do our best to work it out.


Can I nominate myself?

Self-nominations won't be counted towards any of the categories.


When will I find out if I've been nominated?

Nominations will close on 8 May, nominees will be notified by email following this and will receive an invitation to attend the awards ceremony on 2 June where the winners will be revealed!


How does the judging process work?

Once nominations close on 8 May, all of the entries will be anonymised and sent to our expert judging panels, where a winner and runner-up will be picked for each category!
