PATIENTS are being given the chance to reward NHS staff who go the extra-mile to improve their care.

The NHS Heroes campaign urges staff, patients and their families to nominate the staff members and teams whose compassion and kindness made a difference to their lives. Nominees do not have to be someone who has directly saved a life but anyone who has made a positive impact on the experi-ence of a patient.

Lancashire Care NHS Foundation Trust are inviting the public to vote. Hazel Richards, director of nursing at the Trust said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for members of the public to show their appreciations for staff.”

The deadline for entries is June 19. They can be submitted via
