Nominate your Healthcare Hero for an award

Do you have a local healthcare hero? Has someone working in a caring profession made a real difference to your life or that of your family? Perhaps someone has supported you through an illness or helped you in a way you never thought possible? Or maybe you wouldn’t be here today without the expertise or the response of a quick-thinking health professional?

Whatever your story, health organisations in Hull and the East Riding want to hear from you.

On Thursday 7th July, NHS organisations across the region will come together to host the first ever Health Expo, arguably the biggest celebration of healthcare innovation and excellence ever seen in Hull and the East Riding. The daytime event is open to the public, and will culminate in a special awards ceremony that evening.

But you have just a few days left to help organisers find Hull and East Yorkshire’s Healthcare Hero of 2016. Nominations are being accepted for anyone working within healthcare locally who has made a difference your life. From doctors to dentists, midwives to mental health workers, pharmacists to therapists, if you know someone who epitomises the caring profession, now is your chance to see them recognised.

Nominations can be submitted online via the Health Expo website:

Please try to give as much information as you can about the person or team you are putting forward to make their case as strong as possible; what is it that makes them so special? Have they gone out of their way for you or a loved one? How has their help made a positive impact on your health and well-being?

Nominations must be received by the closing date of Sunday 15th May 2016, and those who nominate individuals who go on to be shortlisted for this award will also be invited to attend the awards ceremony.

Good luck!
