Doctors shortlisted for national award

BASICS Hampshire have been shortlisted for the “citizenship and volunteering” section of the Guardian public service awards.  Chairman Dr Deirdre Dunbar said she was thrilled the group had got so far against such worthy competition, adding “whether we win or not, just being shortlisted in a national award scheme helps get our core message – about the vital need for a high level of critical care – across the UK.”   The awards will be announced on Tuesday 23 November.
