NOMINATIONS close on Friday for the Oxford Mail and Oxford University Hospitals NHS Trust’s Hospital Heroes awards.

The Oxford Mail has teamed up with the trust to celebrate the work done by staff at our hospitals who have made a difference.

We are looking for an individual and a team who make an outstanding contribution to patient care.

They could be nurses, midwives, healthcare assistants, porters, hospital doctors or consultants who have changed your life or that of a loved one.

Or they could be those who have made life easier with simple, thoughtful acts that made your care that bit easier.

The trust runs Oxford’s John Radcliffe and Churchill hospitals, the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre and Banbury’s Horton General.

Last year, the first time the awards were held, hundreds of people took the time to make nominations, each explaining their own special reasons why their chosen person should be honoured.

Send your title, name, address, postcode, phone, date of birth and email, along with the name of the person or team you nominate, to Oxford Mail Hospital Heroes c/o Communications Offices, Level 3, John Radcliffe Hospital, Headley Way, Oxford, OX3 9DU. Please include up to 250 words on why the person or team is your hospital hero.

Winners will be revealed in early December.
