Nursing Times Awards
Browse the different Nursing Times Awards and be recognised as a leader in nursing
The profession’s most prestigious and sought-after recognition, the Nursing Times Awards offer individual nurses and teams the opportunity to demonstrate just what this exceptional profession is capable of, to share their creativity and innovation, and demonstrate their compassion and commitment. They are also a forum through which the wider profession can learn about the outstanding initiatives that are improving patients’ experiences of care and increasing the efficiency and effectiveness of healthcare provision.
Brand new for 2012, the Student NT Awards have been designed to recognise and reward outstanding educational establishments, honour those taking the time to shape the future nursing generation, and to recognise student nurses whose achievements make them stand out from the crowd.
As NHS budgets come under increasing pressure it is vital that excellent practice taking place in individual organisations is identified and replicated or adapted more widely. This will not only increase patient safety, but will also reduce expenditure associated with patient safety incidents. The Patient Safety Awards aim to recognise the best patient safety initiatives so that they can be shared across the health service. The awards are also an invaluable way for individuals and organisations to increase the profile of their work.
Recognising and rewarding excellence in collaborative clinical practice.
Integration between the primary, community and secondary branches of healthcare in the UK is essential to providing flexible, efficient and responsive services that best meet the needs of patients with long-term conditions. Excellent projects and initiatives are being employed throughout the country to achieve more integrated care pathways; and these awards are designed to recognise, promote and reward these outstanding efforts.
