Noel Brown, cabinet member for community engagement and public health said: “Reading about the Dignity in Care Award nominees is something I genuinely look forward to each year.

“From my own personal experience I know that there are some who go well beyond what you would normally expect as a service.

“These awards are our way of recognising those who go the extra mile and to say thank you.

“We want to hear about who should be acknowledged in 2019 for being a true superstar.”
