Apply now for the Our Health Heroes Awards


Posted on 14 August 2017 (Permalink)

Following the success of the inaugural Our Health Heroes Awards in November 2016, the celebration of our healthcare workforce is back for 2017.

This year, the awards are going bigger and better and want to recognise the hard work of even more of our nation’s Healthcare Heroes, whether they are support workers, apprentices, integrated teams or workforce planners.

The Our Health Heroes team is searching for teams and individuals which work in the healthcare sector, whether voluntary, private or public, who go above and beyond the call of duty, are creative and innovative in their roles and deserve a big thank you.

If you know someone that fits the bill, nominate them to get the recognition they deserve. The categories are: 

  • Operational Support Worker Award
  • Clinical Support Worker Award
  • Apprentice of the Year Awards
  • Integrated Team of the Year Award 
  • Workforce Planning Team of the Year Award.

Of particular interest are the Integrated Team of the Year Award, sponsored by NHS Improvement, which celebrates teams who help to deliver person centred, integrated care across professional, organisational and/or sector boundaries, and the Workforce Planning Team of the Year Award, sponsored by NHS England, which celebrates excellence in integrated workforce planning.

The nomination process is really simple and easy to use - just visit the Our Health Heroes web page here, select the category you would like to nominate for and complete the short online application form by 15 September.
