Here at Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (HHFT), we know that our junior doctors work extremely hard, often under very testing circumstances, to provide expert care for all our patients.

In recognition of this, we are proud to host our third annual Junior Doctor Awards.

This is a great opportunity for patients, their families and visitors, and fellow colleagues to show their gratitude for the outstanding work our junior doctors contribute every day across our trust by giving them the chance to win an exceptional award.

We really want to hear from people who feel that doctors working for our trust have provided exceptional, compassionate care or gone above and beyond to help their patients.

The winners will be announced during a special ceremony taking place at University of Winchester in June.

Our junior doctors are a vital part of our team, and in the last year have really stepped up and risen to the challenges brought about by Covid-19 – keeping our patients at the heart of everything they do and being a support for one another.

These awards are a great opportunity to stop and reflect on all that they have achieved over the last year and celebrate their valuable contribution to how we care for our patients at HHFT.
