Last year’s winner was lung specialist Dr Leon D’Cruz who works in the respiratory research department at Maidstone Hospital.

The research associate was praised for the support and care he gives, including arranging seminars for those with lung problems and being instrumental in setting up the Kent Lung Awareness charity.

Dr Leon d'Cruz (centre) was named Hospital Hero 2017 and received his award from Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust chief executive Glenn Douglas and TV personality Debbie McGee

Dr D’Cruz also flew abroad twice to get the right training on complex equipment, picking up the cost himself.
