Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

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.”
