Public Urged to Nominate Local Health Heroes

Wednesday, May 29, 2019

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. 

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. 

NHSGGC’s Chairman is asked people to nominate and help identify those who deserve recognition. For the first time ever, all seven categories are open to the public: 

  • Nursing Your chance to nominate a top nurse or top nursing team who displays the best qualities of patient care and the ethos of nursing 
  • Global Citizenship Excellent examples of NHSGGC staff who have travelled overseas to provide healthcare and/or education to people in developing countries or in countries in crisis 
  • Volunteer We have so many volunteers – please tell us your favourite 
  • Better Care Tell us more about the excellent care you have received through any NHSGGC service 
  • Better Health How have we helped you improve your health? Maybe it’s healthy eating, smoking cessation, physical activity, or activities aimed at improving mental health. Tell us more 
  • Better Value Nominate projects which are saving time or resources 
  • Better Workplace A new award for 2019 - This category recognises the often unseen work of our staff who are helping to make NHSGGC a Better place to work. 

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 to celebrate those 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 and I’m looking forward to reading more inspiring nominations this year.”
