With little more than a week left until the deadline for Hospital Heroes Public Recognition Award, time is running out for you to get your nominations in.

The North West Anglia Foundation Trust is seeking out local hospital heroes at Peterborough City, Hinchingbrooke and Stamford and Rutland hospitals and among staff at community hospitals in Doddington and Ely.

The trust needs the public's help to find a member of hospital staff, or a volunteer, who has gone above and beyond the call of duty to make a hospital visit memorable for all the right reasons.

The trust wants to hear why you think that members of staff deserves extra recognition, so that they can be honoured at the annual Outstanding Achievement Awards taking place in October.

Rob Hughes, chairman of the foundation trust, said: “We have had a fantastic response from the public so far, with some incredibly heart-warming and inspiring stories about our staff, who really have gone the extra mile to provide amazing care.”

The Trust has teamed up with the Hunts Post to gather nominations for our Hospital Heroes Public Recognition Award.

The deadline to nominate your Hospital Hero is Friday, August 31. Send in details of the staff member you would like to nominate, including their name, department and hospital they work at.

Please also ensure you include full details as to why you are nominating them. Send your nomination to nwangliaft.communications@nhs.net.
