Here is the announcement health workers and patients have all been waiting for – the shortlist for this year’s Best of Health Awards.

And what a line-up it is for our competition, which this year brings together outstanding people in the health profession across South Tyneside and Sunderland.

The awards will culminate in the grand finale next Thursday night at the Quality Hotel in Boldon.

There are outstanding contenders in every category, and the judges found it incredibly hard to narrow the field down.

But now we are gearing up to the big moment when we will reveal the winners in everything from the GP Practice of the Year to Hospital Doctor of the Year.

Judges said they found it hard to choose just one winner from this year’s impressive line up of candidates, but in the end they managed to select the people who are still in the running – and they are all listed below.

Dentist Keith McClean of mydentist, Sunderland Road, South Shields, nominated for Best of Health Award.

We will also bring you a full report of the events at the competition in the Sunderland Echo the next day.
