Evening Express (City Final) - - News -

AN IN­DI­VID­UAL and three health­care teams from the North-east have been se­lected as fi­nal­ists at the Scot­tish Health Awards 2017. The Choose Life North East Scot­land team is short­listed for both the Care for Men­tal Health Award and the In­no­va­tion Award. The part­ner­ship is be­tween Aberdeen­shire Coun­cil, Aberdeen City Coun­cil, NHS Grampian, Po­lice Scot­land, the Sa­mar­i­tans and other or­gan­i­sa­tions.

It has been widely praised for a strong dig­i­tal me­dia cam­paign and a mo­bile app that was cre­ated in an at­tempt to re­duce the num­ber of sui­cides in the area.

Staff mem­bers at NHS Grampian also formed part of the At­tend Any­where Project team, which de­vel­oped the con­cept of video con­sult­ing ser­vices for pa­tients across Scot­land, and has been short­listed for the In­no­va­tion Award.

In ad­di­tion, Kyle Gauld, an elec­tri­cal crafts­man at Aberdeen Royal In­fir­mary has been named as a fi­nal­ist for the Young Achiever Award, while the Aberdeen Royal In­fir­mary ECMO Team is in the run­ning for the Top Team Award.
