Moorfields' Stars 2016

Moorfields’ Stars is back for another year - and this year it's supported by Moorfields Eye Charity! The awards celebrate the achievements of Moorfields' staff over the past 12 months and we're delighted to be part of it.

The patient choice award

This year, to reflect the importance of patient care and the number of patient nominations received last year, a new patient-only award has been introduced; the patient choice award. This award welcomes nominations from patients past and present, friends and family of patients, carers and foundation trust members for a team or individual who has delivered exemplary patient care over the past 12 months. Your nominee(s) will have displayed behaviours and values that had a positive impact on your experience and demonstrated their commitment to going over and above to assist and support you.

The Moorfields Way

The Moorfields Way defines the way in which staff want to behave with each other and with our patients. To be a Moorfields’ Star, your nominee(s) will have demonstrated one or more of the following commitments in their delivery of exemplary patient care.

Caring – makes people feel listened to

Organised – works efficiently and goes out of their way to minimise the amount of time people are kept waiting, and keeps people informed

Excellent – makes a significant impact to the delivery of a world-class, professional service

Inclusive – makes everyone feel informed, involved and part of the team

David Probert, chief executive of Moorfields Eye Hospital, commented: ‘Last year, we received a huge number of nominations from patients telling us how caring and professional staff at Moorfields are. In my role as chief executive I am also fortunate to regularly receive letters of outstanding compliment from patients touched by the efforts of Moorfields staff who go the extra mile to demonstrate our commitments. I’m delighted to introduce the patient choice award to formally recognise teams and individuals who go over and above.’
