Announcement: NHS Parliamentary Awards 2020 postponed

We must regrettably announce that due to the COVID-19 and the need for NHS staff to give this their full attention, we have decided to postpone the NHS Parliamentary Awards due to take place on 10th July 2020 in the House of Commons.

If your MP has already submitted a nomination for the awards, this will still be considered when the awards take place. MPs will also be able to submit new nominations or make any necessary changes to their current nomination(s) as the nomination platform will remain open during this time.

As soon as we are able to confirm a new date and deadline for submissions for the awards, we will share that with you.

The Excellence in Healthcare Award

From the first 1001 critical days of life, through to supporting those with the top causes of early death (heart disease and stroke, cancer, respiratory conditions, dementias, and self-harm) for the people of England, this award recognises individuals or teams who go above and beyond improving the outcomes and experiences for patients living with and beyond major health conditions or working to prevent those conditions.

This could be through:

  • supporting access to antenatal, perinatal and postnatal services;
  • establishing a new process to identify and prevent major conditions earlier;
  • developing effective ways to share and spread awareness of a major health condition; or
  • working with patients and their families to support people to stay well, emotionally and physically, and recover in their own homes, with the right support in place in their communities.
