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 Carers Health Team has made a real difference to the local community, helping to engage informal Carers, who often put their own needs aside.  The team focuses on providing informal carers with clinical assessments of their own health needs, helping to recognise and maintain these, whilst being in a caring role. The team and organisation are dedicated to ensuring that the health and wellbeing of informal carers is promoted and that they are treated with care and compassion.

Nominated by: Sir Peter Bottomley MP, Rt Hon Nick Gibb MP, Gillian Keegan MP and Rt Hon Sir Nicholas Soames MP
Rt Hon Nick Gibb MP: "The Sussex Community Foundation Trust’s Carers Health Team do amazing work looking after those who look after others. Their hard work provides carers with essential support, and I am proud to nominate them for this award."
