We are gearing up for our annual Exceptional Healthcare Awards.

The awards, supported by Southmead Hospital Charity, celebrate the efforts and achievements of some of our outstanding members of staff and volunteers.

In the lead-up to the awards ceremony on November 10, we will be showcasing the shortlisted nominees in every category.

Today we are looking at the Supporting Southmead category, which recognises volunteers, fundraisers and Move Makers who have made an outstanding contribution to the Trust.
