WARWICK and Leamington MP Matt Western is on the hunt for healthcare heroes.
Mr Western is calling for people to nominate extraordinary NHS workers who they think deserve national recognition.
The successful nominees could then be included in a special parliamentary awards ceremony which is being organised to mark the 70th birthday of the NHS.
It features ten categories including a Lifetime Achievement award to honour those who have devoted their lives or careers to making the NHS better
Mr Western said: “The NHS is one of the nation’s most loved institutions, and it is right that we take the opportunity of its 70th birthday to recognise and thank the extraordinary people – the everyday ‘health and care heroes’ – who are there to guide, support and care for us, day in, day out.
“I know there are many examples of excellent care and practice benefiting local people, and I would urge those working with and for health and care organisations in the local area to send me further examples they think deserve national recognition.”
The regional champions will then be judged by a panel, with winners announced at a awards ceremony in Parliament on July 4th – the day before the NHS’s 70th birthday.
Nominations close on March 23 and one nominee will be chosen per category.
