Now is your last chance to nominate health professionals from the Peterborough and Stamford Hospitals Trust who go the extra mile.
The hospitals trust has called on Mercury readers to honour any team or individual members of staff for their hard work and dedication in caring for patients.
Nominations for the Public Recognition Award close on Wednesday.
This week the catering team at Peterborough City Hospital have been nominated and a second entry has been received for Dr Kanchan Rege, a lead consultant in the haematology oncology team at Peterborough City Hospital.
Len Loullis, of Hillary Close, Stamford, has nominated the catering team.
Mr Loullis said: “During my all-too-often stays in the Peterborough City Hospital, the one thing I do enjoy is the food, which is excellent.
“There is a wide menu choice and I have yet to be disappointed with a meal, which is always served by cheerful, helpful, staff.
“Peterborough City Hospital must serve the best hospital food in the country.”
Patient services manager for Medirest, Deborah Knight, said: “We are thrilled to be nominated for this award.
“We are very proud of the quality and choice of meals that we provide to patients at the hospital.
“Customer service is always a priority to us and it is wonderful for the team to be nominated for such a prestigious award.”
Dr Rege and the haematology team at Peterborough City Hospital have been nominated by cancer patient Peter Murcott, of Melbourne Road, Stamford.
Mr Murcott said: “If it was not for Dr Rege I would not be here today. “
He said Dr Rege, her team and the nurses on the oncology ward were very caring in his time of need.
Last week Leukaemia patient Alison Smith, of Priory Road, Stamford, and her sister Vivien Gibney, of Geeston, also nominated Dr Rege.
