The finalists have been named in the Hereford Times Health and Social Care Awards 2023.

For several weeks we have been seeking nominations for our awards, which aim to highlight exemplary work across a range of categories.

We have been reading about what you have told us the people and organisations you think worthy of praise, and we have been left humbled and inspired.

Now our judges will assemble to decide who among this amazing shortlist should be singled out for awards.

Sponsored once again by the University of Worcester and Altogether Care, the glittering awards ceremony will be at Hereford Racecourse on Thursday, October 12, at 7pm. Experienced compere Rob Stokes will be introducing nominees and winners.
