PEOPLE in Hillingdon have the chance once to reward outstanding compassionate health care.

Nominations for the 2019 Compassionate Care Awards are now open.

Hillingdon Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, which operates Hillingdon and Mount Vernon hospitals, is inviting everyone to put forward an individual or team for the honour as part of its annual staff awards. Winners will be announced in June.

The trust wants to hear from patients, their friends and carers about someone who has made a difference and provided excellent level of care.
