Categories

The Greenock Telegraph Health & Care Awards recognises the incredible health and care workers both at individual and team level, who are at the heart of our local community. There are 10 categories to choose from to get your health heroes the recognition they deserve for their achievements.

This award is about teams working together to deliver improved patient care. They can be from any sector but must demonstrate impact, very strong team working, strong communication, and the ability to work across organisational boundaries.

Care Hero Award

This award recognises that all our care workers across Inverclyde are heroes. Care workers make a difference to people’s lives every day and this award celebrates that. Do you know a care worker who has worked hard to enable someone to live an independent, safe and fulfilled life? Have they helped to change someone’s life for the better? It is these everyday stories about how our care workers make a difference (big or small) that the judges want to hear.

Care Home Worker of the Year Award

This award recognises the contribution of an individual care home worker who strives to improve the delivery of care in the care home sector, through developing ways to enhance nursing care. This person must demonstrate outstanding levels of commitment to care and put the person being cared for at the heart of what they do.

We are looking for a health care professional who demonstrates an innovative and caring approach to their work. This person must demonstrate outstanding levels of commitment to patient care and put the patient at the heart of what they do. Entrants can be from any health care profession, and can work anywhere, from community care, dental practices, to surgical theatre.

This award is open to an organisation, department and or individual carer/nurse/doctor/charity who specialises in the care and treatment of children and young adults within Inverclyde. This can range from specialist paediatrics, mental health, social, emotional, or behavioural support, along with those who offer assessments and intervention.

Dementia Carer of the Year Award

This award recognises the contribution of an individual care worker who strives to improve the delivery of care for those suffering with dementia. This person must demonstrate outstanding levels of commitment to care and put the person being cared for at the heart of what they do.

Palliative Carer of the Year Award

An award for an individual or team that recognises how choices made by the person being cared for and their family is central to the service and care that is delivered. This involves reflecting fully on what is important to the person at the end of their life. The judges will be looking for a carer or team who demonstrate what it takes to support clients and their families with care as well as psychological, social and spiritual support.

Mental Health Award

This award is open to a department or individual carer/nurse/doctor who specialises in the care and treatment of mental health in Inverclyde. Good mental health is now recognised as a vital component to good overall health and we would like to hear how the care and support in this sector has improved the lives of the individual and their families.

We want to hear from anyone under the age of 18 who looks after someone in their family who has a disability, illness, mental health condition or addiction. This young person may have made a huge contribution to family or community life. Examples may be, helping around the house, looking after siblings, or taking on extra responsibility for someone else in their family or neighbour.

DR/GP of the Year Award

This category has been created to recognise, highlight, and reward a local medical practitioner for the healthcare, ongoing support and/or inspirational work they have carried out during the pandemic for their patients.
