Nurses who provide care to members of the army, navy and RAF are to have their work recognised at a nationwide awards ceremony.
Nominations for the newly-launched Military and Civilian Health Partnership Awards were opened last week.
The awards are intended to publicly recognise the efforts of and care provided by healthcare professionals to current members of the armed forces. There are eight categories including care of veterans, education and training, mental health, healthcare reservist of the year and team of the year.
Any individual or team working in the Defence Medical Services, the NHS or in private or voluntary sector organisations can apply for an award, and can either self-nominate or be put forward by an external party.
The awards are a joint scheme between the Ministry of Defence, Department of Health, Welsh Assembly, Scottish Government and the Northern Ireland Executive.
All nominations must be in by 5 July and the individuals or team short-listed will attend an awards ceremony in October at the Royal Hospital Chelsea, London.
