Public urged to nominate their local Health heroes for Chairman's Awards

Wednesday, May 4, 2016

NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde’s (NHSGGC) new chairman, John Brown, is appealing to residents across the board area to nominate their local NHS hero for the prestigious annual Chairman’s Awards. 

This will be John’s first year hosting the event which celebrates innovation and staff who go that extra mile to provide exceptional care for their patients. 

The four award categories open to the public 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

John said: “This will be my first Chairman’s Awards and I’m pleased to be personally involved in recognising the dedication and compassion so many of our staff display in looking after people across Greater Glasgow & Clyde. 

“These awards have really struck a chord with the public and every year we receive a high volume of nomination 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. 

“Our staff see people in a wide range of situations from hospital in-patients to public health initiatives. There are remarkable instances where services’ have moulded to meet patient needs and projects that have transformed the way we work. 

“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.” 

To nominate your local health hero visit or call free on 0800 027 7246. The closing date for entries is Sunday, 31 July.
