Do you know a marvellous medic? Put them forward for this award, which will recognise those who go the extra mile.
Doctors are the lynchpins of health care – and we want to hear why your doctor deserves to praised.
Through this category, sponsored by Nuffield Health, we are looking for the star doctor working in Leeds or Wakefield.
They could be a GP, diagnosing day-to-day health problems, getting to know whole families and supporting them through the ups and downs of life.
Or they might be working in a hospital, specialising in one particular field of healthcare.
The shortlisted doctors may work in one of the region’s NHS hospitals, or in the private sector.
They may be experts in their specific area, such as last year’s winner Dr Yasir Abbasi.
The consultant psychiatrist in addictions at Leeds and York Partnership NHS Foundation Trust was named the winner after the judges heard of his work running a special clinic treating people struggling with prescription drug dependency.
He was described as “going the extra mile”, which included ringing one patient every day, leading her to say that she “owed him her life”.
We want to hear about other star doctors, including medics of all levels, from young clinicians starting out their career to experienced doctors who are eminent in their field. CLICK HERE TO MAKE YOUR BEST OF HEALTH AWARDS NOMINATION
