A rush of nominations have come in for the top health professionals from the Peterborough and Stamford Hospitals Trust before deadline on Wednesday.
The hospitals trust called on Mercury readers to honour any team or individual members of staff for their hard work and dedication in caring for patients.
And readers have responded with nominations for consultant Richard Cousley and the orthodontic team, Caroline Woods from the therapy services department on the rehabilitation unit at Peterborough City Hospital and consultant Karen McAdam and the oncology team.
Dr Kanchan Rege, a lead consultant in the haematology oncology team at Peterborough City Hospital, has received another nomination, this time from Brenda Murphy of Priory Gardens, in Stamford.
Mrs Murphy said: “I can not speak too highly of her.”
Ian Prentice, of Station Road, Deeping St James nominated Caroline Woods,
He said: “After a recent accident I received excellent care from surgeons and nursing staff to repair my injury.
“She always greeted me personally by name, always had a smile,
“She always told you what see was doing and why, and asked about your lifestyle so she could advise the best exercises for recovery.
“This lady always goes above and beyond.”
Caroline, pictured left, said: “I am extremely honoured to be nominated for this award. To be nominated by a patient is a reward in itself.
“I am passionate about my role within outpatients as a hand therapist and strive to provide good patient care.”
Diane Savage of Colton Close, Baston, nominated Dr McAdam and the oncology team at Peterborough City Hospital.
Mrs Savage said: “My husband underwent a lot of chemo in the clinic and often had to be on the ward because of problems. Dr McAdam, the oncologist, all the nursing staff and the lovely receptionists were all brilliant.
“They made it all so much easier for my husband and myself, when they knew there was nothing else that could be done they were so kind.”
Kate Neal nominated Dr Cousley and the orthodontic team at Peterborough City Hospital.
Mrs Neal said: “I badly broke my jaw seven years ago which amongst other treatments required me to undergo orthodontic treatment for three years.
“Dr Cousley and his team were always professional, polite, informative and, even better, the appointments were on time.”
Dr Cousley, pictured left, said: “I’m delighted to hear of Kate Neal’s very kind nomination. It’s most unexpected.
“I was just pleased that Kate was one of the first people in the UK to benefit from a new non-surgical technique and was such a pleasant and positive patient throughout her treatment in the department.
“I’d also like to acknowledge that such things are only possible because of the unstinting dedication and support of the whole team of orthodontic nurses and maxillofacial technicians”
A winner from each hospital will be announced at the trust’s awards ceremony in October.
