Health workers who give care above and beyond their normal duty will be recognised in awards run by NHS Forth Valley.
People are being asked to nominate staff and volunteers who they believe have shown first-class care and commitment for outpatients and inpatients.
Jane Grant, the health board’s chief executive, said: “We want to hear about the many wonderful people who work in our organisation who go the extra mile every day to deliver excellent care and treatment to patients.
“This is an opportunity to for their colleagues, patients and members of the public to say thanks and show their appreciation.”
Nominees can be either an individual, team, service or department.
The six award categories are:
n Top Team
n Outstanding Care
n Unsung Hero
Nominations can be made online at www.nhsforthvalley.com/staffawards. Forms are also available in the main public reception and waiting areas of hospitals across Forth Valley. These can be returned in freepost envelopes or handed to a member of staff.
The closing date for nominations for this year’s awards is Thursday, August 13.
