Nominations are now open for the NHS Tayside Staff Appreciation and Recognition (Star) Awards.

Now in their third year, the awards celebrate the individuals, teams and services working in NHS Tayside who deliver outstanding patient care or go the extra mile in their job.

Chief executive Grant Archibald was joined by some of last year’s winners to officially launch NHS Tayside’s 2019 Star Awards at Ninewells Hospital.

He said: “I’m delighted to officially launch the 2019 Star Awards.

“These are a great opportunity for members of the public and colleagues to show their appreciation for the hard work and dedication of our staff.

“We know that often it’s the little things that make the biggest difference to patients, their families and colleagues, so if someone has gone that extra mile for you, why not say thank you by nominating them?

“No matter what their job is, any member of NHS Tayside staff can be nominated, including medical and nursing staff, therapists, community staff, support staff and those who work in the more ‘hidden’ departments who may not deal with patients on a day-to-day basis.”
