Campus Ambassador wins national NHS award

Two NHS Highland staff were recognised at the Scottish Health Awards held earlier this month in Edinburgh.

Inverness Campus Ambassador and NHS Highland’s director of research, development and innovation, Professor Angus Watson, won the Innovation Award and cystic fibrosis nurse at Raigmore Hospital, Lesley Blaikie, won the Nurse Award.

NHS Highland’s interim director of human resources, Dawne Bloodworth, said: “I want to congratulate Angus and Lesley on receiving their awards. They are a wonderful example of the hard-working, dedicated healthcare professionals we have across NHS Highland.

“NHS Highland has a fantastic reputation for research, development and innovation and Professor Watson is at the forefront of this work. We also take pride in our innovative work to support people living with cystic fibrosis, and Lesley and her colleagues at Raigmore Hospital deserve enormous praise for the care and support they demonstrate on a daily basis.
