Our annual Celebrating Excellence Awards recognise our exceptional individuals and teams for their dedication and commitment to our vision: ‘creating high quality, compassionate care and wellbeing for all’ and our values of compassion, respect, integrity and trust.

We’re excited to announce this year’s awards ceremony will be back to face-to-face on the evening of Thursday 13 October 2022 (subject to any relevant Covid restrictions and infection prevention and control guidelines).

The awards are a superb opportunity to celebrate the significant contribution of Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust (LPT) staff and volunteers, and to share their achievements for the wider benefit of patients, service users and staff.
