Top Award Goes to Greater Glasgow and Clyde Healthcare Hero

Friday, November 3, 2017

An NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde healthcare worker scooped a top award at the Scottish Health Awards 2017 in recognition of their invaluable contribution to Scottish healthcare.  

Violet Grant, Healthcare Support Worker at the Beatson West of Scotland Cancer Centre, was awarded the Unsung Hero Award at last night’s ceremony in Edinburgh. 

The Unsung Hero Award celebrates individuals or a team who, in the course of doing their job, make a real difference for people in Scotland, but whose work often goes unrecognised. 

Also winning the coveted Healthier Lifestyle Award was the multi-disciplinary team at the Centre for Integrative Team who fought off stiff competition to take the prize.  This award aims to recognise the dedication and commitment of an individual or team that motivates and supports people in Scotland to make a change in their lives which has led to them leading a more active, healthier and fulfilling life. 

John Brown, Chairman, NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde, said: “I am delighted to congratulate both Violet and the team at the Centre for Integrative Care on winning a Scottish Health Award.  

“It is wonderful that our staff are recognised for their dedication and commitment to enhancing our services.  Both winners are a great example of the excellent work carried out every day by all NHS staff.” 

Every year, the Scottish Health Awards recognise and reward the dedicated NHS staff, support workers, volunteers and specialist teams who go the extra mile to provide outstanding patient care.
