NOMINATIONS are coming in for this year’s South Wales Argus Health and Care Awards 2018.

The awards were launched in 2017 to celebrate inspirational and dedicated workers in the health and care industry

Following last year’s success the awards are back and aim to reflect the range of work done by those working within these sectors and organisations providing health services.

We are looking for nominations from health care professionals and members of the public for a range of awards that aim to recognise the full spectrum of services offered in these industries.

Emma Mills was honoured on 2017 for her work in medical research.

Mrs Mills works across NevillHall hospital, Ysbyty Ystrad Fawr and the Royal Gwent Hospital as the technical research lead for midwifery.

The former community midwife moved into a leadership role two years ago and now manages studies across the three sites.

She said: “I feel lucky because the things I’m passionate about are midwifery and research and this job combines both of them.”

The Research Impact Award winner added: “I love my work and privileged to work for a health board that are so supportive.

“If we make one change that makes it better for people then it makes everything so worthwhile.”

A panel of judges will decide the winners and they will be revealed at a special presentation event that will be held on October 18 at Chepstow Racecourse.
