Moorfields' Stars of 2019

Moorfields Eye Hospital has launched its annual staff award scheme; Moorfields’ Stars of 2019. The scheme, now in its eleventh year, recognises some of the star-quality teams, individuals and volunteers across the trust.

Supported by Moorfields Eye Charity, Moorfields’ Stars includes seven competitive awards: Moorfields’ star of the year, Moorfields’ team of the year, Moorfields Eye Charity award for innovation and improvement, Moorfields’ leadership award, Moorfields’ unsung hero award, the patient choice award, and the Moorfields' volunteer of the year award. Patients, friends and family of patients, carers, foundation trust members and volunteers are eligible to nominate in two of the award categories: the patient choice award and the volunteer of the year award.

The patient choice award criteria
