Nominate your Health Hero

Posted on 02/09/2014 by


The sixth annual Celebrating Success Awards have now launched and NHS Lothian is calling on the public to nominate their local ‘Health Hero’ for recognition in its staff awards.

The ‘Health Hero’ category allows the people of Lothian to recognise a healthcare worker who has delivered exceptional service as well as the best patient care.

gayleLast year’s winner was Gayle McRobert (pictured above), a diabetes nurse at the Western General Hospital. Gayle won the award after providing ‘incredible support’ to cancer patient David Murray, whose diabetes spiralled out of control after starting treatment, and his wife Eileen.

Tim Davison, Chief Executive, NHS Lothian, said: “The Celebrating Success Awards mark the inspiring and truly amazing work that takes place across health services in Lothian every day.

We have recently adopted a common set of values across NHS Lothian and we have been encouraging all of our staff to embrace them.

Many of our staff go above and beyond their duties every day, put the values at the heart of every day working life and demonstrate our commitment to providing high quality patient-centred care.

The ‘Health Hero’ Award is a way of saying thank you to those staff who provide the standards of care that NHS Lothian is so proud of.”

The public are invited to nominate anyone who has made a real difference to them or a loved one, or who they feel deserves recognition for their work and their care.

Help us to ensure our shining stars across Lothian receive the recognition they deserve by nominating them for the Celebrating Success Awards this year!
