Call to nominate Orkney’s health and social care heroes
The Scottish Health Awards 2019 are on the hunt to find Scotland’s most dedicated healthcare professionals, but there is only a limited time left for the public to nominate.
NHSScotland, the Scottish Government and Daily Record are urging people across Orkney to submit their nominations before 5pm on Thursday, August 29.
The Scottish Health Awards celebrate the NHS staff, support workers, volunteers and specialist teams who go above and beyond to provide exceptional care and support to their patients and their families. Each year, these often-unsung heroes help thousands of people and the annual Scottish Health Awards aims to give these extraordinary individuals the recognition they deserve.
Patients, families, work colleagues and members of the public can make a nomination for one of 17 diverse categories. These range from the Doctor Award for an individual providing excellent NHS care, to the newly launched Global Citizen Award which recognises the individual or team who not only work in a health and social care day job, but also volunteer in global health and social care work.
All finalists will be invited to attend an awards ceremony at the Corn Exchange in Edinburgh on November 14.
