Nominate your local health hero

DO you know a health professional who goes far beyond the call of duty to deliver outstanding care to patients?

Nominations for a national campaign to find the doctor, nurse, pharmacist or any health professional who has gone the extra mile for you, your family or your community, must be submitted by April 19.

The Health Hero Awards, launched in association with The Daily Mail and ITV’s This Morning is being supported by the Prime Minister David Cameron.

It is looking for unsung heroes, whether they are working on the front-line or behind the scenes, who deserve some recognition. To enter go to or pick up a form at your local Lloydspharmacy (New Kirk Road and Milngavie Road, Bearsden).

From those nominated, five finalists will be chosen and invited to a prestigious award dinner in London in June where an overall winner will be chosen. The prize for the winner is a £5,000 fantastic holiday.
