THE night where some of the most inspirational people working in healthcare are honoured is upon us.

Tonight the Portsmouth Guildhall will open its doors for The News annual Best of Health Awards 2013. Here is the awards shortlist.

The ceremony recognises the scores of doctors, nurses, community teams, mental health teams, dentists, pharmacists and many others who take care of us when we need them.

This year’s Hospital Doctor of the Year category is sponsored by Verisona Law.

Vincent Denham, CEO of Verisona Law, said: ‘From consultants, doctors and nurses to managers of service providers and support organisations, everyone who works in the healthcare industry should be recognised for the valuable work they do to support others.

‘We offer sincere congratulations to all those nominated for awards this year.

‘As one of Portsmouth’s leading legal firms, Verisona Law is delighted to be sponsoring The News’ Best of Health Award’s Hospital Doctor of the Year category.’

The law firm, which is based in 1000 Lakeside, North Harbour, offers broad and niche legal services to organisations and individual clients from its offices.

Mr Denham added: ‘Verisona Law has years of experience working within Portsmouth’s healthcare community.

‘Whether liaising with organisations to establish the care needed for clients who have suffered personal injury, supporting medical professionals in need of legal advice or providing local companies working within the health sector with commercial services to help them with their business, Verisona Law is proud to be part of an event that highlights and celebrates a fundamental part of our everyday lives.’
