NHS Heroes 2013

NHS Heroes 2013 has now been launched!
NHS Heroes 2013 is a recognition scheme designed to celebrate the unsung heroes in the NHS family. Remember, you don't need to save lives to be a hero. On the contrary, it's often the smallest, most considerate things that go beyond expectations and make a real di­fference to people's lives.
Like sharing some precious time, off­ering a hand to hold, a shoulder to lean on or a few words of comfort. These are just a few of the things that thousands of NHS Heroes provide every day to make sure that each and every patient receives the very best care. If you know someone who goes the extra mile or gives that little bit extra, show them how much you care by nominating them as your NHS Hero today.
It will only take a few minutes of your time but the pride of being nominated will stay with your hero forever.

Nominate your NHS Hero from 19th March at and join in the conversation at

'As I was very, very nervous, I must have been the worst patient ever and they were brilliant with me and I can't thank them enough - could you please pass on my sincere thanks.'
