NHS celebrates excellence

The NHS is hosting the fourth annual Celebrating Excellence Awards Ceremony at Easterbrook Hall, Dumfries on Friday 18 September.

Every year, thousands of people in Dumfries and Galloway receive excellent quality care from staff in hospitals, community settings and their own homes.

In order to recognise the dedication and acknowledge the numerous achievements of staff, nominations are now open and the NHS is calling on all staff, patients and local people to take part by telling staff who they want to see recognised for their commitment to their work.

Pick up a nomination form from Dumfries and Galloway Royal Infirmary or request an electronic copy from margo.christie@nhs.net, l.pattinson@nhs.net or nshdg@entourageuk.com.

The deadline for submitting nominations is Friday 31 July.

These awards will formally demonstrate the NHS’s appreciation of staff, who deliver outstanding care, improvements to service and innovative practice to people and communities across the region.

The NHS invites patients and/or their carers to nominate staff within the Patient’s Award who they feel deserve recognition. The NHS would also like to invite a patient and/or their carer to join its judging panel on the Thursday 20 August.

For further about the Celebrating Excellence Awards please contact Lori Pattinson by phone on 01387 241 083 or by email at l.pattinson@nhs.net.
