The borough's health heroes have been praised for their hard work at an annual awards ceremony.

NHS staff and volunteers who work in Doncaster have had their achievements and dedication recognised and at an event, which was held earlier this month.

The event, held at the Keepmoat Stadium, was organised to highlight the hard work that staff and volunteers do every day at Rotherham, Doncaster and South Humber NHS Foundation Trust (RDaSH) to support and improve the lives of others.
Lawson Pater, RDaSH Chairman, said: “This is a really special event which recognises our talented, passionate and dedicated staff and volunteers who go above and beyond every day.

“We are very proud to be working with them and it’s our way of saying a big thank you to each and every one.”
