Residents throughout Greater Glasgow and Clyde are being urged to nominate their NHS hero for NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde’s (NHSGGC) prestigious annual Chairman’s Awards before the deadline for nominations at the end of August.
Members of the public have until 31 August 2012 to nominate a member of NHS staff or team who go that extra mile and provide exceptional care for their patients.
Since the 2012 search for NHSGGC stars was launched earlier this year the health board has received nominations for some wonderful individuals and teams who have demonstrated the highest standards of care for their patients.
The public can nominate in the category of Nursing and this year’s awards also recognise the contribution that the public make to our organisation with two new categories which the public can also vote for - a Volunteer Award and a Patient Ambassador Award.
The Volunteer Award gives our staff and the public an opportunity to nominate someone who goes that extra mile to volunteer help to our patients whilst the Patient Ambassador Award recognises the efforts of those who represents patients either on a Public Partnership Forum or on a patients’ panel.
NHSGGC Chairman, Andrew Robertson, said: “This is the fourth year of these awards and I am delighted and impressed with the enthusiasm shown by patients and their relatives and healthcare professionals in identifying worthy nominees.
“The awards were of an exceptionally high standard last year and the competition was stiff. I look forward once again to the difficult job of choosing the winners!”
