More than 25 teams, staff, and volunteers who have made a difference at the James Paget University Hospital over the past 12 months have been shortlisted for the organisation's Remarkable People Awards.

Around 250 nominations were received for this year's award categories which include Ward of the Year, Employee of the Year, the James Paget Award for Innovation and the EDP Gold 'Patient Choice' Award.

After hours of consideration, the judging panel has decided on the shortlist – and all the finalists have been invited to an awards dinner held at Zest, Potters Leisure Resort on Friday, when the winners will be announced.

The winners of the Governor's award for the Outstanding Service, the EDP Gold 'Patient's Choice' Award, and the new Chairman and Chief Executive Commendation will be announced on the night.

David Wright, chairman of the trust, said: 'The Remarkable People Awards evening is an important event on the calendar which allows us to showcase and celebrate the hard work and dedication of our staff.
