Do you know someone who is a Health Hero, someone who has gone above and beyond to improve the health of you, your family or someone you know? Then we want to hear from you.

We are looking for inspirational stories of those individuals who have made a real difference – whether they are a dedicated GP, a wonderful community nurse, or a midwife who has helped a new mum through a difficult time. Or it could be a member of the public, an unsung hero who goes out of their way to help others, or an inspirational charity worker or volunteer.

The categories are:

Nurse of the Year

Carer of the Year

GP of the Year

Dentist of the Year

Midwife of the Year

Optician of the Year

Elderly Welfare Award

Child Care Award

Therapist of the Year

Pharmacist of the Year

Hospital Doctor of the Year
