“A Chance to Celebrate Your Successes” – Amerjit Chohan on why you should nominate someone for the St George’s Hero Awards

25th February 2019

Amerjit Chohan, Chief Executive of St George’s Hospital Charity, took the time to answer some questions about the St George’s Hero Awards ahead of the nomination deadline this Thursday 28 February.

The newly named St George’s Hero Awards, previously known as the Staff Appreciation Awards, celebrate the outstanding achievements and excellence of staff working at St George’s Hospital, Queen Mary’s Hospital and community healthcare services across south west London. 

Nominations for the awards are open until Thursday 28 February, so make sure you have submitted your nominations on time!

You can submit your nominations here!

 

Why were the charity keen to support the awards again this year?

“For any NHS Trust, the staff are at the heart of everything they do, so it’s important that we recognise them whenever we can. The St George’s Hero Awards are a great opportunity for us to celebrate just some of the incredible work done by all of you.”

 

Lorraine Kelly is our host this year – why do you think she will be a good host?

“Lorraine has been a great advocate for St George’s since she was a patient here. Like so many people, she loves the NHS and sees hosting the awards as a small way of giving something back. She is a very visible figure too, so for us, she can help raise the profile of the awards and of course help us celebrate the amazing staff who work here.”

 

What are you most looking forward to on the night?

“Hearing the stories behind the nominations. This will be my first awards at St George’s but I’ve heard from those that were there last year just how special the evening was for those that were nominated. But it’s also a special night for our supporters, fundraisers and donors. It gives them a chance to celebrate your successes and hear first-hand how staff go above and beyond.”

The deadline for nominations is 5pm on 28 February.
