HEALTH staff from this area have been short- listed for the West Yorkshire Modernisation Awards 2005.
The Primary Prevention nursing team of the North Kirklees Primary Care Trust is in line for one of eight awards for NHS health and social care staff.
The awards recognise and reward the success of NHS staff across West Yorkshire in improving services for people.
This is the second year of the awards and the presentation ceremony takes place on Friday, March 11, at Leeds United's Elland Road ground.
About 120 projects from across the region were submitted.
The final decision is made by a panel of judges made up of patients, service users and staff.
The winners will be announced on the day and will receive £1,000 to reinvest into their projects to develop them.
The Primary Prevention nursing team is one of three teams across West Yorkshire which have been short-listed for their work in improving public health by promoting healthy living and preventing disease.
Spokesman Chris McLean said: "This service is the first of its kind to be run on a PCT-wide, nurse-led basis. We are very proud of the team's achievements.
"The service has been developed to work in partnership with service users, to promote healthier lifestyles and cut the risks of heart disease."
