National award for health IT worker

Posted onPosted on 5th Mar

A member of the Nottinghamshire Health Informatics Service (NHIS) IT team at Sherwood Forest Hospitals Trust has won a national Unsung Hero Award.

NHIS second line engineer Pete Fox won the Every Day Hero award, which celebrates the hard work of non-medical NHS staff within four disciplines — admin and clerical, ancillary, corporate functions and IT.

The IT Everyday Hero Award particularly recognises people who have gone above and beyond their daily duties.

Pete said: “I was so surprised to win and I feel honoured to have been recognised.

“I just get on and do my job and help people when they need it, but obviously people feel that I go above and beyond, which is quite humbling.”

The Unsung Hero Awards were split across 18 categories, with the winners being announced at a ceremony in Manchester.
