Right Arrow Could your business support NHS heroes?
01 February 2016 at 11:01

Businesses are invited to sponsor an award scheme which recognises excellence in the NHS.

Southport and Ormskirk Hospital NHS Trust Pride Awards are in their eighth year.
 
They are for hospital staff and teams or those working in community health services who deserve special recognition for their excellence and professionalism.

There are several awards categories including a Patients’ Award. This gives the opportunity for patients and families to show their individual appreciation to a particular member of staff or team.

The Trust is keen to hear from businesses across Formby, Southport, West Lancashire and wider north west, interested in supporting this year’s Pride Awards.

Sponsorship opportunities are available for each of the award categories, starting at £750.

Ann Marr, interim Chief Executive, Southport and Ormskirk Hospital NHS Trust, said: “The annual Pride Awards offer a fantastic opportunity for the community to support their NHS heroes.

“We are grateful to our existing sponsors for helping to finance this event but would love more companies to come on board. The Pride Awards are designed to celebrate the contribution made by NHS workers in delivering outstanding care to residents across Formby, Southport and West Lancashire.”
