Unsung heroes from University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS Foundation Trust (UHMBT), a partner of Choose South Cumbria, were honoured at the Your Health Heroes Awards earlier this month.

Staff members and teams from Furness General Hospital, Westmorland General Hospital and the Royal Lancaster Infirmary were recognised alongside dedicated volunteers and fundraisers.

Jackie Daniel, UHMBT’s Chief Executive, said: “It’s important that we pay tribute to those we work with and formally recognise their achievements.

“What makes these awards so special is that they are nominated by patients, members of the public and work colleagues. That in itself is a great accolade for the work that goes on every day, right across our hospitals.”

Winners announced in fourteen categories during a ceremony held at Castle Green Hotel in Kendal on March 18 included Team of the Year, Volunteer of the Year and the Chief Executive’s Award.
