Last year's winners in the Health and Care Awards, The Pembrokeshire Vikings, were named winners of the Mental Health Award 2022, for the incredible work they do for their over 16s mixed ability rugby team.

The awards are back for 2023 and you can now nominate your health care heroes. 

The awards are being held in association with Werndale Hospital, which is part of the Circle Health Group, and recognise those in the community whose efforts in the health and care industry have gone way above and beyond what is expected of them.

“We want our readers to share their stories with us, and create a permanent record of all those incredible achievements and care that has been shown to them by their health carers throughout these last 12 months,”commented West Wales editor Clare Snowdon.

“The awards give people the opportunity to celebrate the challenges of the past year at overcoming their adversity and by showing tremendous strength, courage, compassion and tenacity, thanks to the way in which their health care has been provided."

A total of eighteen awards will be handed out at the ceremony, and now people are being given the chance to nominate individuals, teams and businesses which they think would make worthy winners.

These will include a range of carers across the whole sector including GPs, nurses, carers and volunteers.
