The four award categories open to the public are:
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.”
