Nominations for the 2016 Scottish Health Awards are now open, running until 1 September.
The annual awards, run in partnership between the Daily Record, NHS Scotland and the Scottish Government aim to recognise the extraordinary work of people on the frontline of Scottish health care.
The awards seek to recognise workers who have genuinely made a difference to the lives of patients or their families. It might be an individual or a team who have provided outstanding care to their patients or those who are in jobs that normally don’t have a high profile and who generally should be recognised for their commitment to the NHS.
There are sixteen award categories:
- Support Worker Award
- Innovation Award
- Volunteers Award
- Midwife Award
- Therapist Award
- Care for long-term illness Award
- Young Achiever Award
- Unsung Hero Award
- Care for Mental Health Award
- Integrated Care for Older People Award
- Healthier Lifestyle Award
- Leader of the Year Award
- Dentist Award
- Nurse Award
- Doctor Award
- Top Team Award
Nominees must work for NHS Scotland, with the exception of the Healthier Lifestyle, the Volunteer, the Integrated Care for Older People, the Innovation and the Unsung Hero categories where nominations are welcomed from those that support healthcare in the communities in which we live.
