The hard work and dedication of local healthcare staff was recently recognised at NHS Fife’s annual awards ceremony.

More 120 people attended the NHS Fife Staff Awards, which were hosted at the Dean Park Hotel in Kirkcaldy. The ceremony was the first since 2019, after the awards were put on hold during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The evening opened with a special video message from broadcaster and raconteur, Gyles Brandreth, who was cared for at the Victoria Hospital after a fall during a visit to Anstruther. Guests were also treated to a performance by the staff choir, Healthy Harmonies, who performed a medley of songs from their recent concerts.

Individuals and teams were recognised across ten categories:

  • Rising Star Award
  • Volunteer Award
  • Health and Wellbeing Award 
  • Service Improvement Award 
  • Inspiration Award 
  • Lifetime Achievement Award 
  • Unsung Hero Award 
  • Innovation Award 
  • Team of the Year Award 
  • Chair's Award 

Each of the finalists were selected after being nominated by their colleagues, with a panel of judges from across the organisation whittling down each category to a final three.
