CARING health staff won recognition at their own NHS Oscars night.
Honours were presented during a gathering at Bertie's Banqueting Rooms in Elland.
More than 160 staff working for Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Trust were present.
A cheque for £5,000, to be used for educational purposes, went to Dianne Lewis, Paula McDonagh and Julia Thompson for their work with confused old people.
Other winners were:
* Tracy Adams and Cath Cockin, for helping pregnant women who had potential incontinence problems
* Wendy White and Lorna Moore, for developing nurse-led clinics for patients who have had joint replacement and orthopaedic operations
* Sandra Lickess, Chris White and Monica Slocombe, for improving stroke services
* Jan Freer, for integrating organisational development activities.
The evening was also a chance to thank staff who between them have more than 2,500 years' service.
Stephen Jones, Christine Binns, Brenda Robinson and John Whitwam received recognition for 40 years of service each.
The ceremony was the highlight of a week of presentations.
