Public Urged to Nominate Local heroes for Platinum Award

Tuesday, May 29, 2018

John Brown, NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde’s chairman, has issued his thanks to residents across Greater Glasgow and Clyde for nominating their local NHS hero for the prestigious annual Chairman’s Awards. 

The awards this year will be a celebration of the NHS’s 70th anniversary and there has already been a significant number of nominations made, but there is still time if you haven’t already nominated an individual or team before the closing date in July. 

The event 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. 

Chairman John Brown said: “Each day when I visit services across the organisation I am hugely impressed by the people I meet and their dedication to their patients and the NHS.  

“Our awards are a fantastic opportunity to shine a light on these people and in this special 70th anniversary year it is more poignant to celebrate the people who go above and beyond the call of duty to provide exceptional care and support. 

“Last year the entries were of an exceptionally high standard, so much so we awarded the highest number of awards since the Chairman’s Awards were introduced.  And I’m looking forward to reading more inspiring nominations this year.”

The closing date for entries is Tuesday, July 31st.
