NHS Forth Valley Staff Awards 2014

Congratulations to all the teams and individual finalists who scooped up awards at our Recognising Our People Awards 2014 for their efforts and dedication to improving our health service.

Winners of the 2014 Innovation Award, the Theatre Team said:We were absolutely elated that our new and creative ways of working to enhance and support our patients care was recognised, not only in our own department, but also by the wider organisation.”

Jane Kaney, winner of the 2014 Unsung Hero Award said:I felt very humbled to be nominated and then to win the award was a very pleasant experience. It was and still is a great honour.

There are a lot of unsung heroes working within NHS Forth Valley. If you know one or work beside one please nominate them.”
