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 Wellbeing at Work Award

For the NHS Long Term Plan to succeed, we need to ensure we have enough people, in the right place with the right skills and experience, so that staff have the time they need to effectively care for patients. This award is for the person or team that has successfully trialled and implemented change(s) that have made the NHS a better place to work.

This could be through:

  • designing new approaches to improve recruitment and retention of staff;
  • developing safe, confidential non-stigmatising services for staff to turn to when they are struggling and need help;
  • finding new ways for staff to progress in within their roles;
  • implementing new ways for the NHS to cut emissions, energy use or waste to create a greener NHS; or
  • leading the charge in efforts to address discrimination, violence, bullying and harassment.
