Glimpse of brilliance

Glimpse of Brilliance Header

We wanted a way for staff to be recognised and celebrated for the continuous hard work they do to support patients every day, which is why in 2016 we launched the ‘Glimpse of Brilliance’.

Glimpse of brilliance or ‘GoB’, is a simple but effective concept – it’s about building on the good things. We know that staff are achieving fantastic things every day despite the challenges so let’s shout about it!

Our colleagues at Cumbria Partnership NHS Foundation (CPFT) have also introduced ‘Glimpse of Brilliance’ with their staff which means we can celebrate the good work going on in both organisations.

GoB works by staff sending in their nominations about other colleagues that they feel deserved to be recognised for something they’ve done. This can be anything! Every week, we will share a ‘Glimpse of brilliance’ with staff from NCUH and CPFT through internal channels and via social media. You can see our archives below containing all past nominations.

If you’re a staff member from NCUH or CPFT get in touch with your communications team to submit your nominations!
