The special recognitions for all the nominees are testament to the hard work and dedication of both students and staff here coupled with the support of Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust in their extensive training on clinical placements. We wish them all luck on the day of the awards ceremony, but they are already winners as just to be nominated is a great achievement!”
