Hotel staff say they are delighted to honour the area’s health service heroes once again.
The Quality Hotel in Boldon is a sponsor for this year’s Best of Health Awards, which aim to honour outstanding people in the health service.
The annual awards – which are being held jointly across South Tyneside and Sunderland for the first time – will end with a grand finale at the hotel next month.
Carl Wilkinson, business development manager at Quality Hotel Boldon, said the staff are looking forward to hosting the special event again.
He said: “Our entire team at Quality Hotel Boldon are delighted to have been chosen to host such a prestigious local awards ceremony.
“We have a long-standing relationship with South Tyneside and Sunderland NHS Trusts.
“We have been very fortunate to have host a number of high-profile events for the trusts, and we work tirelessly to ensure everything is brought together to deliver a perfect evening. “We last hosted the Best of Health Awards in 2013 and the event was very well received by all who attended.
“We look forward to raising the bar for the 2017 ceremony and welcoming the North-East’s leading health professionals for what will be a fantastic evening.”
Also sponsoring for this year’s awards are South Tyneside NHS Foundation Trust, City Hospitals Sunderland NHS Foundation Trust, mydentist, and NHS Sunderland Clinical Commissioning Group.
