We’re looking for the top teams who are greater than the sum of their parts to provide amazing care to their patients.
team work is crucial in any job, but none more important than in the field of health.
Every part of the system involves many people liaising together to ensure those they are looking after get the best possible treatment and care.
In hospitals, at GP surgeries and in the community, Leeds is home to a multitude of top teams working in all sectors of health and social care.
Whether their job is to look after patients on the front line, or to make sure the behind-the-scenes systems run smoothly, they all have a vital role to play.
Through this award, sponsored by Bradford-based Sovereign Health Care, we are looking for those extra special teams of colleagues whose joint efforts have made a real difference.
Our award will recognise how their hard work and excellent co-operation have had an effect on patients or on people’s lives.
Last year’s winners were a team who were described as “beyond excellent” by the judges.
The head and neck team at Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust impressed with their care and support of patients with cancer.
Now we want to hear of teams who also deserve this accolade – tell us what they have done and why their efforts should be highlighted.
