Nominate NHS heroes


Nomination­s are open for this year’s Scottish Health Awards and east Perthshire residents are being urged to recognise their local health heroes on the national stage.

The Scottish Health Awards celebrate the thousands of healthcare profession­als who go the extra mile to support patients, carers and service users of the NHS in Scotland.

An NHS Tayside spokespers­on said: ”There was an overwhelmi­ng response to NHS Tayside’s Staff Appreciati­on and Recognitio­n (STAR) Awards with over 1000 nomination­s so it’s clear Tayside is jampacked with health heroes.

“This is the public’s opportunit­y to nominate their stars once again, this time on a national stage.”

The public can nominate their health hero in one of the 16 award categories which include Support Worker, Young Achiever, Top Team, and Unsung Hero.

Nomination­s close at 5pm this Sunday, August 21.

The finalists will be announced in October, with the award ceremony taking place in Edinburgh in November.

Further informatio­n on the awards and how to nominate can be found on the Scottish Health Awards website.
