The winner of the Hospital Health Star award was Lydia Baker who is a bereavement midwife. She was chosen for the work she does supporting mums who have miscarried or whose babies are stillborn.

Frazer Allison, who works as a cleaner in a hospice, was chosen to win the Community Health Star award. As well as keeping the place clean and tidy, he provides a friendly face for patients, singing to them, talking to them, and keeping their spirits lifted.

The winner of the Lifesaver award was Nick Smith who set up the Wellness and Recovery group, which provides support for people with mental health problems.

Caitlin Kydd won the Children’s Health Star award. Caitlin was diagnosed with a rare bone cancer, but does lots of work to raise money and awareness to help other seriously ill children.

The winner of the Outstanding Achievement Health Star award was Lisa Wallis from Barnstaple. Lisa, who has terminal cancer, set up a charity called Chemohero which gives out ‘boxes of kindness’ to chemotherapy patients containing items such as moisturisers and pillboxes.

Cecil Turner and the Yeovil Freewheelers motorcycle club won the Team Health Star award. The group have been carrying urgently needed medical items such as blood, biological samples, x-rays and medicines in the Yeovil area for 39 years.

Mr Olivier Ghez is the winner of The Sun’s Special Recognition Health Star Award. Mr Ghez is a paediatric and congenital cardiac surgeon at Royal Brompton Hospital. Mr Ghez specialises in the surgery of heart malformations in newborn babies and small infants and has saved countless lives.

The final award was a News Health Star Award given to staff from St Thomas Hospital and London Ambulance service for their work in the aftermath of the Westminster Bridge terrorist attack last month.
