Winner Claire Albo and finalists of the NHS Southport and Ormskirk Hospitals People's Health Award, which was presented by Stand Up For Southport Director Andrew Brown at Formby Hall Golf Resort and Spa

It’s back! The Stand Up For Southport People’s Choice Award is your chance to say the biggest thank you to those local NHS heroes that have gone the extra mile for you or your family.

Last year Community Midwife, Claire Albo, was victorious following your nominations praising her outstanding care.

Claire was described as the “most caring and compassionate woman I’ve ever met’’ and “someone who goes above and beyond to help everyone in her care while providing vital support for families, often when they need it most.’’

This year’s winner will be honoured at the Mersey and West Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust Awards ceremony in the Liverpool Arena in May.

As well as the People’s Choice Award, there will also be a number of other awards presented on the evening including Employee and Team of the Year.

The event is all about celebrating and recognising the amazing staff at Southport and Ormskirk hospitals, the North West Spinal Injuries Centre and community NHS sites. Nominations can be for an individual member of staff or a team, ward or department.

The event is at no cost to the NHS.
