“Don’t miss your chance to honour our health heroes.”

That’s the message, two weeks before the closing date for this year’s Yorkshire Evening Post Best of Health Awards.

For the fifth year, we’re on the hunt for the most deserving health workers from Leeds and further afield.

The awards aim to recognise those incredibly dedicated and skilled professionals in the field who go that extra mile to make a real difference to people’s lives.

There are 10 categories, including for community health workers, mental health staff, unsung heroes and teams.

There’s also chance to honour carers, emergency response workers, doctors, nurses and midwives.

And there’s a special recognition award for an incredible individual, team or family.

Nominations can be put forward by anyone, whether a patient, service user or health professional.

The closing date is October 19, after which a panel of expert judges will then pick the winners from a shortlist in each category.

Shortlisted nominees will be invited to a glitzy awards lunch at The Queens Hotel, in Leeds, on December 5, when the winners will be announced.

For the fifth year, West Yorkshire firm Sovereign Health Care is sponsoring the awards.

Chief executive Russ Piper said the region’s skilled and dedicated health care professionals had always worked tirelessly to look after our wellbeing.

He said: “Sovereign Health Care is delighted to be able to recognise their continued commitment to providing the very highest level of care and service, especially in these challenging times.”
