Winners from last year's James Paget University Hospitals Remarkable People Awards.

Patients and the public are being urged to speak out about examples of great care they experienced to help a hospital trust celebrate its finest achievements.

Nominations are now open for James Paget University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust's Remarkable People awards, which is held in October.

Archant has teamed up with the trust to sponsor the EDP Gold Patient Choice Award, which is reserved solely for patients, relatives, or carers to thank individuals or medical teams which made a real difference to their or a loved one's treatment.

Christine Allen, chief executive of the trust at Gorleston, said: 'This is a very personal award and the winner should feel very proud of the difference they have made to someone's life.

'It's fantastic that Archant have agreed to support us again in recognising the commitment and achievements of our staff here at the trust.'
