Nominations Open For The NHS Parliamentary Awards

There are just two weeks to go in the nomination process for the NHS Parliamentary Awards 2019 and I want to hear from you about your NHS heroes.

The NHS is a source of national pride and Milton Keynes embodies that so if you know a local person, team or organisations that has gone above and beyond for the NHS please get in touch.

Last year over 250 Members of Parliament nominated an individual or organisation for an award.

There were over 750 nominations from MPs in England: 750 reasons why the national and regional judging panels made up of leading heath and care figures were blown away by the talent, creativity and brilliance in the NHS, spotlighted by England’s MPs.

You can nominate for the following categories:

  • The Excellence in Healthcare Award: an individual or team which is going above and beyond to improve outcomes and experience for patients living with and beyond cancer.
  • The Excellence in Mental Health Care Award: an individual or team which has developed new and effective services to help people living with mental health problems in the community.
  • The Excellence in Urgent and Emergency Care Award: an individual or team which has made improvements to how the NHS treats people in life or death situations.
  • The Excellence in Primary Care Award: a primary care practitioner e.g doctors, dentists and pharmacists or a team which is working with patients to help them stay healthy in their own homes.
  • The Future NHS Award: an individual or team that has successfully trialled and embedded innovative change(s) to empower and improve care for patients.
  • The Health Equalities Award: an individual or organisation that helps the NHS to do its bit by bringing together different groups and organisations to reduce health inequalities and prevent ill health in their community.
  • The Care and Compassion Award: any nurse, midwife or care staff member of any discipline and in any setting who has used their skills to ensure that patients experience care and compassion.
  • The Volunteer of the Year: to celebrate volunteers who help shape and deliver better services in their area.
  • The Wellbeing at Work Award: to the person or team that has successfully trialled and embedded change(s) that have made the NHS a better place to work.
