It is that time of year again when Nursing Times calls on the profession to help it celebrate all that is great and good about nursing by entering our annual awards.
Now in their 27th year, the Nursing Times Awards offer much deserved recognition for the innovative and excellent care that nurses at all levels provide across the UK.
We want to hear from you, whether you are implementing projects to help give hard-to-reach groups access to the services, thinking of ways to help keep staff healthier and fitter, or devising complex technology solutions to make sure patients are kept safer.
By entering, this is your opportunity to:
- Promote and share your work to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of your service to healthcare providers across the UK
- Inform and educate the wider profession about your initiatives to improve patient care
- Be recognised by your peers for being at the sharp-end of patient care and at the cutting edge of service improvement
- Highlight your organisation’s commitment to achieving excellence
Last year saw Erin Docherty, a mental health nurse who works at the Saxonbrook Medical Practice in West Sussex, named Nurse of the Year, while Barts Health NHS Trust was named Team of the Year.
The Chief Nursing Officers’ Award for Lifetime Achievement went to Mary Seacole statue campaigner and nursing academic Elizabeth Anionwu.
- Practice nurse named Nursing Times ‘nurse of the year’
- Seacole statue nurse campaigner recognised with award
The deadline for this year’s entries is 2 June 2017, with the finalists invited to an awards dinner and ceremony at the Grosvenor House in London in November.
