Limelight Awards

Each month DHU reward colleagues who have gone that extra mile to help, support and care for our patients or a fellow colleague with our Limelight Awards.

The Limelight recognition scheme was introduced in 2015 and to date has successfully been awarded to over 50 employees within the organisation.

The monthly Limelight award encourages employees to nominate colleagues within all divisions of DHU Health Care. The nominations are they considered by our Staff Representative Forum and a winner is decided.

Why ‘Limelight’?

Limelight is an intense illumination of employee effort, as someone placed in the ‘Limelight,’ centred on their exceptional contribution to DHU in providing not only quality patient care but care and compassion for each other.

The Limelight Awards were designed to recognise the commitment and dedication of staff members who have provided a service that is over and above what is expected of them in order to make a difference to patients, visitors and/or their colleagues.

Any DHU employee can be nominated for an award, whether their role is front line or part of our support services.

All those nominated receive a letter of recognition from the CEO whilst the winner is presented with a letter, Limelight pin and a £100 voucher. Winners are also recognised on our intranet and our regular company newsletters.
