People in the Lothians are being called upon to nominate local healthcare heroes for the Scottish Health Awards before the deadline of September 6.

Hundreds of nominations have been received from across Scotland, but organisers say many more worthy healthcare teams and top professionals are yet to be recognised for their dedication to providing outstanding patient care.

With the NHS in Scotland helping more than 150,000 Scots every day, the judges are looking for Scotland’s finest NHS workers and volunteers from across every area of healthcare including therapists, GPs, specialist carers or volunteers who work tirelessly behind the scenes of NHS Scotland.

Last year, there were four winners from the Lothian area at the Scottish Health Awards.

The awards will culminate with a ceremony on November 7 in Edinburgh.
