Winners announced for flu fighter reward scheme

Flu bug

05 / 1 / 2016 Midnight

December was the penultimate monthly flu fighter reward competition.  Trusts and health boards in England and Wales were invited to submit entries for a chance to win the best use of incentives in their local flu fighter campaign.


We are pleased to announce that the December winners are Oxleas NHS Foundation Trust for England and Cardiff and Vale University Health Board for Wales. The winning teams will receive limited edition flu bug badges.

Oxleas NHS Foundation Trust

The trust provides a range of local NHS services across South London and Kent through their workforce of 3,500 people. They used a variety of different incentives and rewards to thank, motivate and promote friendly competition among their staff and their peer vaccinators. This included mugs, pens, lunches and books. They also held a flu themed staff poetry competition. 

Cardiff and Vale University Health Board

The health board are one of the largest NHS organisations in Wales, with a workforce of approximately 14,500 staff, providing services to over 472,000 people. A planned and strategic use of reward was used alongside a flu Friday vaccination event. As December is usually a low period of uptake, prizes were offered to both staff and peer vaccinators on the day to increase staff having their flu jab. Because of this work, 75 members of staff were vaccinated in a single day.

If you’d like to be in with a chance to win a limited edition flu fighter badge, you can enter the final monthly reward scheme
