Nominate your NHS hero for an award

To mark its 70th anniversary the NHS is organising a series of awards for NHS heroes, for which nominations can be put forward through local MPs until 23rd March.

We are incredibly fortunate to  have many fantastic people in Cumbria’s NHS doing great work on behalf of patients.

Whether they are doctors, nurses, ambulance drivers and paramedics, midwives, dentists or the unsung heroes in other roles, our hospitals and GP and dental practices and other services are full of caring, hard-working people who often make incredible efforts to care for the sick and vulnerable, sometimes in very difficult circumstances.
Just to give one of the many, many examples of people in Cumbria’s health service who go way beyond the call of duty, Lisa Cairns, a matron in theatres and anaesthetics, walked for three hours through the snow on Saturday to get to work.
There are many other wonderful people like Lisa in our NHS.

We should be grateful to every one of them and thank them for what they do. The 70th anniversary awards scheme is an opportunity for us all to do this.
Anyone in Copeland who wants to nominate a health worker for an award can do so through Trudy Harrison MP before 23rd March. Details of the scheme are available at
