King’s Awards

"King’s has an extraordinarily good-willed workforce with a true and heartfelt desire to make things better. They have hope and resilience, and it’s focused on patients."

Dr Gary Ruiz, Consultant Respiratory Paediatrician

Everyone who works at the Trust has a role in making sure everyone who comes through our doors is treated as a Very Important Person. And we recognise the great work our staff do for patients through our award schemes.

King's Quarterly Staff Awards

Our quarterly award ceremony is a way to regularly recognise individuals and teams who make outstanding contributions to patient care.

Who is eligible for an award?

Any member of staff directly employed by the Trust.

Nominate someone for an award

Patients, relatives, visitors, colleagues and managers who have seen outstanding care can make a nomination.

What happens next?

An independent panel of King’s staff reviews all nominations to decide who will be put forward for an award.

Successful nominees will be presented with their award by the Chief Executive or Board Chair. Individuals receive a certificate and silver gilt lapel badge, while teams receive a framed certificate. The most outstanding person or team at each ceremony is invited to attend the King's Stars annual awards (below).
