Health & Care Awards 2021
The Greenock Telegraph Health & Care Awards recognised and rewarded our amazing local health care heroes.
The event shared the stories of our community of Inverclyde and has created a permanent record of their outstanding and selfless achievements.
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.
ENTRIES ARE NOW CLOSED
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.
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.
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 individuals. This can range from specialist paediatrics, mental health, social, emotional, or behavioural support, along with those who offer assessments and intervention who support our youth across Inverclyde or a young individual under the age of 18 who looks after someone in their family who has a disability, illness, mental health condition or addiction. This person may have made a huge contribution to family or community life.
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.
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.
