Have you or someone you know recently been treated at Medway Maritime Hospital?
Do you want to say a special thank you to a member of staff or a volunteer?
The Medway Messenger has teamed up with Medway NHS Foundation Trust to launch this year's Hospital Hero award.
Perhaps you know someone who went above and beyond for their patients, or someone who worked tirelessly to provide the best care they can.
The winner of the readers' award will be presented at the hospital's Best of People Awards at the Corn Exchange, Rochester on Friday, June 7.
James Devine, Medway NHS Foundation Trust chief executive, said: "We are very excited for this year’s Best of People awards which will celebrate our staff, who work exceptionally hard to provide the best of care for patients in Medway and Swale, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
"The readers’ Hospital Hero award is especially important as it means so much to hear that the dedication of our staff is recognised by patients. I would like to thank everyone who takes the time to submit a nomination."
