The Health & Care Awards 2018
The Health & Care Awards 2018
Hosted by Grimsby Telegraph
From the National Health Service to Private Sector Care Provision these awards honour the dedication, kindness and hard work of care providers across the region. From birth to early years and elderly to palliative care, help us celebrate the unsung heroes of an industry that never sleeps.
While the landscape changes within health service, some things remains constant – the care, dedication and commitment shown by the people working in the health profession. From porters and carers to surgeons and district nurses, our health staff are going that extra mile to uphold the principles of care which means so much to so many.
The Health Awards is our chance to showcase the fantastic health care across Lincolnshire’s health spectrum. Domiciliary care and community services, ward-based care and outpatient clinics, this is our chance to say thank you to the people who are there for us when we need them most. We want to reward teams and individuals who go above and beyond, every day.
Outstanding Health Professional of the Year (E.g.Doctors, Chiropractors, Consultants)
We are looking for North & North East Lincolnshire’s best health professional. The person who has shown great dedication to duty and goes to extra mile to provide the best care possible for patients, either in the community or a health care environment. This could be a nurse, doctor, physiotherapist, radiographer, paramedic, occupational therapist or podiatrist.
Care Assistant of the Year
Do you know someone who constantly puts the needs of another person first? Let us reward the carer displaying true compassion in caring for someone else.
Care home of the year
Caring for our most vulnerable members of society, we’re asking for you to nominate North & North East Lincolnshire’s best care home, where residents are at the centre of care. From tailoring services to meet individual needs to ensuring people are treated with dignity and respect, we’re keen to recognise the best care in our community.
Volunteer of the Year (E.g. Hospice worker, charity work, community workers)
Do you know someone who gives up their time to help others? From visiting the lonely and frail at home to tackle social isolation to helping out at a hospice, tell us about the special person who puts others before themselves.
Services to Mental Health Award
We’re determined at the Grimsby & Scunthorpe Telegraphs to ensure mental health is given parity of esteem with physical health. Do you know of a service which is offering support, advice or help in the community to encourage mental wellbeing? Is there a dementia champion in your midst who is playing a key role in helping people with memory loss? Or is there a service out there tackling depression or anxiety? Let’s give them the recognition they deserve.
Best GP Practice of the Year
