MSP aims to honour health workers
Clare Haughey MSP has encouraged nominations from across the Rutherglen constituency for the Scottish Health Awards.
The awards allow members of the public and staff to nominate those they believe go the extra mile to provide the highest quality health and care for the people of Scotland.
Nominations can be made until September 1 via www.scottishhealthawards.com.
There are 16 award categories all of which are outlined on the site including: support worker, midwife, doctor, unsung hero, volunteer and therapist.
Ms Haughey, who is a former health worker, said: “Our health workers do a power of work, often under pressure and in challenging circumstances, to keep us safe and healthy.
“This is a great opportunity to say thank you and highlight the lengths that a particular individual went to provide care for a patient or to support the work of the NHS.
“As a mental health nurse and deputy convenor of the Scottish Parliament health and sport committee, I’m only too aware of the work that goes on to keep Scotland as healthy as possible.
“These awards are a chance to reflect on our positive experiences of the health service and showcase someone who is doing their utmost to provide the highest level of care.”
