Still time to nominate your local health heroes

There is still time to nominate your local health hero in this year’s annual NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde Chairman’s Awards.

The event celebrates innovation and staff who go that extra mile to provide exceptional care for their patients.

The four award categories you can nominate either an individual or a team are:

  • The Nursing Award recognising nursing stars - an individual or a team - who have demonstrated the highest standards of care for their patients
  • The Volunteer/Patient Ambassador Award celebrates someone who goes that extra mile to help our patients or a patient ambassador who represents patients either on a Public Partnership Forum or on a patients’ panel
  • The Patient Centred Care Award honouring a group of staff who have pulled together to tailor the best possible patient care for those in their care
  • The International Award highlighting staff who have travelled overseas to provide healthcare

Chairmans Awards - Jade

John Brown, Chairman, said: “These awards have really struck a chord with the public and every year we receive a high volume of nominations from right across the board area. This is testament to the amazing work our staff do and how highly they’re valued by the people they see.

“The awards were of an exceptionally high standard last year and the competition was stiff. I’m certain we’ll receive the same high standard of entries this year and I look forward to having the difficult job of choosing the winners.”

You can nominate your local health hero by visiting www.nhsggc.org.uk/chairmansawards or calling free on 0800 027 7246.

The closing date for entries is Monday, July 31st.
