Time running short in hunt for care hero

TIME is running out for readers to send in nominations for the Yorkshire Post NHS Health and Social Care Hero of the Year for 2010.

It may be someone who helps save lives, or who offers support when it is needed most, or maybe helps to pick up the pieces when tragedy strikes.

It is up to readers to tell us who the unsung heroes of the NHS are, whether a doctor or nurse, or perhaps a volunteer, charity or social worker who provides outstanding services or a colleague who is an inspiration for others.

Yorkshire Post readers can nominate by using the form, via www.yorkshirepostnhshero.co.uk or in writing to the Yorkshire Post. The deadline for making nominations is August 3.

A panel of judges will draw up a shortlist of five finalists.
