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.

FREED (First episode Rapid Early intervention for Eating Disorders) is a specialist care pathway for young adults with early stage illness. FREED improves outcomes by providing quick access to person-centred care, making it less likely for symptoms to become entrenched. Research found hospital admissions reduced by 35%, and 60% of FREED anorexia nervosa patients, reached a healthy weight within a year, compared with 16% of similar patients. They are disseminating FREED nationally via an NHS Innovation Accelerator Award.
