The Star Awards 2015
The Sandwell and West Birmingham Hospitals NHS Trust staff awards, recognise the brilliant work that our 7500 staff carry out 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at our hospitals and in the Community.
The theme of the 2015 awards represented cultural diversity, something that is represented highly in our Trust and the community that we work within. With six new awards added to the 2015 awards, the Sandwell and West Birmingham Hospitals staff awards 2015 were the biggest and best to date. The awards were launched on Monday 27th April by our Chief Executive Toby Lewis, and nominations closed on Thursday 9th July.
