NHS patients and staff are invited to nominate their NHS hero as part of a recognition scheme launched to mark the 64th anniversary of the NHS.
Health Secretary Andrew Lansley hopes that NHS staff’s efforts will be recognised by both patients and colleagues: "Staff across the NHS in England carry out fantastic work every day – going the extra mile to make a real difference to people's lives. The NHS Heroes scheme is a chance for everyone to formally recognise these staff and thank them for their hard work, passion and dedication."
From now until mid-September, anyone working for the NHS who is nominated by members of the public, patients or colleagues as going the extra mile in their work will receive a recognition certificate.
