The people of Leeds only have two days left to nominate their unsung hospital heroes across the city.

Leeds Teaching Hospitals’ first Time to Shine awards recognise and celebrate the achievements of both clinical and support staff.

The Unsung Hero award is open to public nominations and provides an opportunity for patients and their families to reward any member of staff who has gone the extra mile in the provision of their care. This may be a doctor, nurse, porter or someone else.

One patient Rachel Warburton said: “I have been a patient at Leeds Teaching Hospitals for a number of years now, with most of my care taking place at Chapel Allerton Hospital.

“I feel that I am in the very best hands.

“I have nominated my doctor as I believe he goes the extra mile in the provision of my care and always puts me at ease.”

Leeds Teaching Hospitals was formed in 1998, bringing together two smaller hospital trusts under a single management and direction for the first time.

It has a rich heritage which has shaped its services to become one of the largest and most respected teaching hospitals in Europe.

It now has more than 15,000 staff working across its hospitals.

The awards, sponsored by the Charitable Foundation, will enable teams across the 
Trust to receive recognition for their work and will provide a platform for sharing good practice.
