Two Ayrshire ‘health heroes’ have been announced as finalists in this year’s Scottish Health Awards.

The ceremony celebrates NHS staff, such as support workers, volunteers and specialist teams, who provide outstanding care and support to patients and their families.

Ian Thomson, senior manager of the North Ayrshire Learning Disability Service, has been shortlisted as a Leader of the Year nominee for her work leading the service through change, expansion and the fight against COVID-19.

Linda McGinn, from South Ayrshire, was also nominated as a nurse award finalist for her work helping parents of children with special needs collect essential supplies during the Covid-19 pandemic, and for her dedication to administering vaccines to staff and children.

Ayrshire and Arran NHS Chief Executive, Claire Burden, said: “We are delighted to have two finalists in the Scottish Health Awards this year. This is an amazing recognition for our employees across the organization. We are so lucky to have staff like Ian and Linda who don’t think twice about looking after those in Ayrshire and Arran.

“We wish everyone success. It is a great achievement to get to this stage and I would like to congratulate Ian and Linda on reaching the final. Their selflessness has such a profound effect on those they care for.’

The winners will be announced on Thursday 3 November at a ceremony at the 02 Academy in Edinburgh.

The awards are run annually by the Daily Record in partnership with NHS Scotland and the Scottish Government.
