With campus welcoming the Westfield Health British Transplant Games 2018 in August, this year’s OSCARS is proud to be raising funds for transplant research.

Working together as Birmingham Health Partners, the University of Birmingham, University Hospitals Birmingham and Birmingham Women’s and Children’s NHS Foundation Trusts’ can provide a truly ageless approach to transplantation research and together form one of the largest and most dynamic transplant centres in the UK and internationally.

Birmingham itself offers the largest, youngest and most ethnically diverse population in Europe. This unique co-location of world class clinical academic teams, our integrated medical campus and comprehensive campus facilities means that Birmingham is ideally placed, with your support, to uncover the next advances in transplant science.

About the OSCARS

Every year, the University of Birmingham’s Hospitality and Accommodation Services (HAS) recognises and rewards staff achievement and customer service at the annual OSCARS night. This year's theme will bring all the glitz and glamour of 1950s Las Vegas.

The purpose of the OSCARS is to recognise the individual or collective efforts of staff who go the extra mile. They ensure customers’ needs and expectations are not only met, but exceeded. These are the individuals or teams who help HAS live up to its vision of providing excellent services for our community.

More importantly, this is your chance to recognise and nominate staff and colleagues you feel have consistently done more than is expected to get the job done.
