In an awards show that is likely to bring a tear to the eye and a lump to the throat, the achievements and tireless work of NHS staff will be recognised at a glittering ceremony from London’s Hilton Park Lane hotel.

The NHS Heroes Awards, the first of their kind, are being held to mark the 70th anniversary of the NHS and will be hosted by Paul O’Grady in front of a star-studded audience.

Celebrities will present the awards to those who have gone above and beyond the call of duty.

Doctors, nurses, surgeons and air ambulance crews will be honoured, as will all manner of fundraisers and unsung heroes.
