This year we have received a tremendous 175 entries involving hundreds of staff members and every single one of them had its own powerful reason for being there.
Today there are fourteen winners across the ten categories – each one representing the ethos of NHS care and dedication.
In addition to the entries received there are hundreds of other members of staff who are going that extra mile to make a special difference to the lives of patients and their families at the time of greatest need.
To present these awards we are delighted that Alex Neil, cabinet Secretary for Health and Wellbeing recognises the importance and has agreed to present to the winners.
We are struck by the enthusiasm, commitment and excursive of the highest professional skill by our staff.
Our Chairman Andrew Robertson would like to congratulate the best of them and applauds them all.
The awards have gone from strength to strength. These winners are excellent examples of how we can showcase the best of NHS services.
