About the award

The Exemplary Patient Award was launched in 2008 by the National Healthcare Group (NHG).

The award recognises patients who have gone beyond themselves to give back to fellow patients and the health-care system.

It is given out as part of NHG Quality Day 2014 celebrations.

Ms Nellie Yeo, NHG's Group Chief Quality Officer, said the Exemplary Patient award celebrates patients who go beyond recovery and reach out to other patients despite their own illnesses.
