Congratulations to our March 2023 MVP Award winner, Afia - one of our fantastic nurses.

Nomination reasons:

  • A very good organiser and Nursing Team leader

  • She knows how to manage stressful situations and solve problems very well

  • Afia always seeks advice on her 'pros and cons'

  • In a short time, she has become a very dedicated nurse at our beloved Mildmay

And congratulations again to everybody else who was nominated and recognised publicly for the fantastic work they’ve been doing.


Mildmay's monthly MVP Awards were devised by one of our physiotherapists, Josh Pedro, who recognised that in addition to the annual staff awards by our Trustees, our resilient, dedicated and hard-working staff deserved a fun way to support each other and recognise excellence in their colleagues.


This award aims to recognise the amazing things that Mildmay staff do daily, which may otherwise fly under the radar. By bringing this to the forefront, we can impart regular goodwill and warm, fuzzy feelings into the workplace and give our staff the appreciation they deserve!


The Mildmay MVP Award is a monthly, ‘people’s vote' type staff awards system. Candidates are nominated by and voted for by staff. No hierarchy!

Each month, we ask for nominations for who our staff think has been the Mildmay MVP. You can nominate any member of staff (clinical, non-clinical, senior management, catering, finance, facilities etc.) & this can be for anything big (saving someone’s life) or small (being really smiley every day).

Time goes by so quickly in a busy hospital, and from now on, our staff collectively decided to move to bi-monthly awards as it was felt this would make the awards just a little bit rarer and, therefore, a little bit more valued.

Once the nominations are in, we can all vote for the winner in an online poll. Everyone sees the nominations, so even if they don’t ‘win’, hopefully, feels nice to be recognised publicly.


The ubiquitous Amazon vouchers.


On social media and chat forums, MVP means "Most Valuable Player." In this context, the MVP is the player in a sports team whose individual performance is considered the most significant. MVPs can be chosen for their performance throughout a season or in a particular competition or game.
