Here they are - the fantastic elite of the Hartlepool health world who have been shortlisted for awards.
We are days away from announcing who has won this year’s Hartlepool Best of Health trophies.
And yet again, it has been no easy task to even reach this stage of announcing a shortlist. But the judging panel eventually whittled down the superb field.
And now all that awaits is the finals night next week where the winners will be revealed, as well as some extra causes who will win special honours.
This year’s competition has been backed by North Tees and Hartlepool NHS Foundation Trust, the Hartlepool and Stockton-on-Tees Clinical Commissioning Group, the Cleveland Fire Support Network and Seneca Homes.
The grand finals night will be held at the Hardwick Hall Hotel on Thursday, June 18.
We will be there to capture all of the emotion, reaction, cheers and tears on what promises to be a wonderful evening.
So make sure you follow it all on the night on Twitter and at www.hartlepoolmail.co.uk, and the following day in the Hartlepool Mail.
And watch out too for a supplement filled with even more photographs and interviews in the Hartlepool Mail on June 24.
