Awards celebrating Great Yarmouth and Waveney’s hardworking hospital staff will be live streamed for the first time.

Every year the James Paget University Hospital Remarkable People Awards recognises the outstanding efforts of teams and members of staff who have gone above and beyond to provide exceptional service.

More than 300 nominations were made this year by from patients, their family members, the public and staff and there are more than 30 finalists in 12 separate categories.

But with limited ticket space, and a waiting list of people eager to see whether their colleague, loved one, or clinician takes home a prize, the awards ceremony will be shown on Facebook Live for the first time.

You can watch the livestream from around 9.15pm on Friday, October 5, by visiting Eastern Daily Press health correspondent Geraldine Scott’s Facebook page or it will also be shared on the Facebook pages of the Great Yarmouth Mercury, Lowestoft Journal, or Eastern Daily Press.
