CITY health workers are among those to be branded NHS heroes in a national scheme.

Ten teams in Coventry were recognised as part of the campaign to reward top work done by staff who improve the lives of patients - who voted for their winners - within the NHS.

All winners worked within mental health and community services across the area.

Each winner received a certificate signed by NHS chief executive David Nicholson at a special ceremony.

Local Partnership NHS Trust chair Martin Gower said: "Early Intervention Teams do a really difficult job, reaching out to young people who need care and support across our community.

"All too often, their work goes unseen, so this award is especially gratifying."

Early Intervention Team, based at Swanswell Point

Young Onset Dementia Team, Caludon Centre

Rano Bains, equality and diversity lead, Wayside House

Julie Kiley, administration manager, Paybody Unit
