The Scottish Health Awards are the most prestigious and recognised awards for those working across NHSScotland and its partners to deliver high quality health and social care services to the people of Scotland across NHSScotland and its partners. Run by the Daily Record in partnership with NHSScotland and the Scottish Government, 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 the people of Scotland.

The Daily Record is proud to play its part in recognising the extraordinary work of the people on the frontline of health and social care services in Scotland. The Awards reflect the amazing diversity of talent and showcase the dedication and commitment of the people who work tirelessly on our behalf. NHSScotland is committed to providing sustainable high quality health services for the people of Scotland. Increasingly, health and social care services will be delivered in an integrated way focussing on prevention, anticipation and supported self-management and the awards aim to recognise this approach.

The Scottish Health Awards celebrate the extraordinary work of the people on the frontline of healthcare provided by our NHS and its partners. We want to know about the people who have genuinely made a difference to your life or to the lives of your family or friends.
