More than 40 hospital heroes have today been named as finalists in the NUHonours Awards.
The annual awards ceremony recognises staff at Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust who have gone the extra mile.
We asked staff, patients and the public to nominate the people who have made a real difference to their lives in the past 12 months and received almost 1,000 nominations.
These have now been whittled down to the finalists in 15 categories, ranging from Team of the Year to Volunteer of the Year.
Eric Morton, NUH Chairman, said: “We were inundated with stories of the compassion, care and dedication shown by members of ‘Team NUH’ and it was not an easy task for judges to choose their finalists.
“Very many congratulations to all of the shortlisted candidates, they should be very proud to have made it this far against some extremely tough competition.”
The full list of finalists can be viewed here.
Winners will be announced at a ceremony at the East Midlands Conference Centre on 24 November.
