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.

Carer Support Team, Watford General Hospital

VYA-EE-Carer Support Team, Watford General Hospital

East of England

The Carer Support Team give support to parents and carers, so they are better able to care for their sick child in Children’s Emergency and on Starfish Children’s Ward.  The team’s approach is innovative and unique in Britain; their enthusiasm and commitment is palpable.  Their community funded service, described by CQC as “outstanding”, is impactful and provides 60 hours of support a week to 5,500 carers per year. They are an amazing example of the community mobilising to support itself and the NHS.
