The Lifetime Achievement Award
For an individual who has worked within a health or care setting for 40 years or more and has left a truly impactful legacy.
This award seeks to honour those who have dedicated their lives to working in the NHS and have left it – whether just in their area or nationally – a better service for patients and/or a better place to work for those who will follow them. We are looking for someone who has worked or volunteered within or in support of a health or care setting for 40 years or more and has very much left their mark.
This could be through:
- championing diversity and inclusion at work and in how the NHS treats patients;
- leading improvements in care or working conditions in challenging circumstances; or
- simply bringing a smile to patients’ faces day in and day out.
Questions to be answered when nominating:
- Outline this person’s career/relationship with, or supporting, the NHS
- How have they made the NHS better for patients?
- How have they made the NHS better for past, present and future staff?
NB – 40 years’ service does not need to be continuous, for the same organisation, or entirely in a paid capacity.
