Who’s your NHS Hero?
05 February 2013

This winter has been particularly challenging for NHS staff, with outbreaks of norovirus and flu, and adverse weather conditions hitting most parts of the country putting hospitals, GP practices and ambulance services under a great deal of pressure.

Recent widespread snow and icy conditions have brought parts of the country to a standstill with school and road closures, flight cancellations and people unable to leave home ….but stopping isn’t an option for NHS staff, they have no choice but to plough through.  No matter the weather conditions, NHS staff and teams across the country go above and beyond their call of duty day in, day out to make sure you get the care you need, when you need it - without the expectation of acknowledgement or a thank you.

The NHS Heroes campaign is your chance to give a little back by saying thank you, it gives everyone in England the chance to acknowledge the NHS staff that have been their heroes this winter; patients, their friends and families, work colleagues and professional peers can all nominate their personal NHS Heroes.

Completing a nomination will only take a few minutes of your time, but the pride of being nominated will stay with your hero forever.

The last NHS Heroes campaign saw over 3,500 nominations received and we found some truly inspirational and touching stories of NHS staff; like the community matron who walked miles in the snow during her day off to make sure vulnerable patients had food and vital supplies.  Or the nurse who missed her own birthday to save a boy’s life by giving him CPR for over 25 minutes in sub-zero temperatures, knelt in the snow. 

With your help we want to find more amazing stories like these and celebrate our NHS Heroes this winter. So spread the word about this fantastic campaign and help it snowball!

Don’t miss your chance to nominate this winter, visit www.nhsheroes.com and remember - you don’t need to save lives to be a hero, sometimes it’s the little things that make a big difference.
