The Scottish Health Awards are the most prestigious and recognised awards for those working across NHS Scotland and its partners to deliver high quality health and social care services to the people of Scotland. The awards are now well established in the Scottish calendar and recognise those that go that extra mile to improve the health and wellbeing of others.


We're delighted to announce that voting has now opened for the People’s Choice Award, for this year's Scottish Health Awards. 

The People’s Choice Award specifically recognises our individuals and teams who have responded so magnificently to the challenge of caring for people during the COVID-19 pandemic, while at the same time maintaining a range of essential services and continuing to provide essential care.

Once again, it was an incredibly difficult task for the shortlisters to select the six finalists for the public vote as the quality of nominations was exceptional. The wide range of remarkable stories of colleagues going above and beyond to provide the very best care under challenging circumstances is truly inspirational.
