Community healthcare staff who go above and beyond the call of duty to help their patients and colleagues have been honoured as NHS Heroes.

A total of 18 NHS Hero awards have been handed out to teams and individuals from Lincolnshire Community Health Services NHS Trust.

They were all nominated through a national recognition scheme.

Sue Cousland, chief nurse at LCHS, said: “We are very proud to be able to recognise our local NHS Heroes.”

“These awards aim to identify and celebrate some of the more considerate things our staff do for patients and fellow staff members, which often go unrecognised.”

“These teams and individuals work across many of our services, from offices behind the scenes, housekeepers, ward clerks, nurses and team managers.”

“The contribution that each of them makes to the care provided by Lincolnshire Community Health Services is absolutely invaluable and very much appreciated by all those who receive it.”
