CMO calls for award entries from nurses working in public health

  • Comment
CMO Sir Liam Donaldson is calling for entries for a new award dedicated to nurses and any other staff working to improve public health.

The new Chief Medical Officer’s Public Health Awards will recognise individuals, teams and services that have made an impact in public health in England.

Entries must demonstrate evidence of impact and sustainability of the initiative or project, with judges also looking for evidence that initiatives can be replicated elsewhere.

‘Public health in England has a long and proud history, and our current system is the envy of many other countries in the world. Yet those working to improve the health of our citizens do not always get the recognition they deserve,’ said Sir Liam.

‘In establishing these awards I hope to shine a spotlight on public health and increase awareness of the exciting and innovative work taking place that will truly make a difference to the health of the nation,’ he added.

The awards are open to anyone working in public health in England, regardless of job title or role. The closing date for entries is Wednesday 22 April 2009.

The winners of the gold, silver and bronze award 2009 will be announced on 30 June 2009, at an awards ceremony in London.
