We have over 4,000 staff and we’re passionate about celebrating and recognising their achievements.
The Black Country Awards for Talent and Achievement (BAFTAs) provides us an opportunity recognise the hard work and dedication of both our clinical and non-clinical staff, working within our acute hospitals and within the community.

Each and every day our staff are doing amazing things to care for the people who use our services, to support and look after each other, to encourage colleagues to develop and grow, to improve our working environment and to make people smile.

The awards in 2022 will be the second of its kind and the first in-person staff awards for Black Country Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust, with our first held virtually in 2021. There will be 15 categories including our Patients Choice Award.

Nominating our staff, and for staff to nominate their colleagues can go a long way. It doesn't take long, and you could really make big impact by doing so. Please follow the instructions below on how you can nominate for our Patients Choice Award.

Nominations are open from 1 July until 26 August 2022. Our judges will shortlist nominations and winners will be announced at our celebration event in October 2022.
