The first ever awards specifically for nurses and other health professionals working with patients with multiple sclerosis have been launched.

The QuDos awards are intended to recognise “innovation and excellence” in the management and service delivery of care for MS patients.’

The QuDoS awards are a partnership between the charity the MS Trust and pharmaceutical industry PR firm pharmaphorum, backed by a number of drug companies including Genzyme and Novartis.

“These awards will enable teams and individuals across the UK to be recognised for their efforts”

The awards are open to MS specialist nurses, general nurses working with people living with MS, and other health professionals.

A statement on the awards website said: “Whether you are working in a major centre or providing an MS service in a rural community setting, the QuDoS in MS Awards are a chance to gain recognition for the difference you make to people with MS or nominate others for their great work.”

In total there are 10 categories. The entry deadline is 3 September and winners will be announced at a ceremony on 7 November.

The MS Trust said it was “pleased to support the launch of the first ever awards recognising the contribution of healthcare professionals to improving care for people living with MS”.

“These awards will enable teams and individuals across the UK to be recognised for their efforts in improving the quality of care for people living with multiple sclerosis,” she said.
