This year’s Celebrating Success will be the last for our retiring Chairman, Andrew Robertson.
Andrew along with the very glamorous host for the evening - Gina McKie from Radio Clyde will be presenting to over 400 people.
The winner and all the entries tell the story of a dedicated workforce. A staff blessed with individuals who produce the very finest examples of quality patient care and endeavour that raises the bar to new heights.
This year the judge’s panel unanimously agreed to make a special judges award. This is only the second time in the six year history of our Chairman’s Awards that the judges have felt the need for such special recognition.
The nomination came in from a colleague who was struck by the compassion, care and thoughtfulness of this particular young nurse.
The entry told a story of how this nurse went the extra mile to help support a most vulnerable young mum who had just suffered a heartbreaking bereavement.
The judges felt this entry summed up all that is worth celebrating within the NHS culture of caring.
The nurse in question worked in the Schiehallion Unit of the Royal Hospital for Children at the time.
She has since gone to work in Robin House, a children’s hospice on the banks of Loch Lomond.
We recognise the outstanding nursing qualities Louise McPhail.
