How to Nominate

How to nominate

The nomination process has been designed to make it as easy as possible for individuals and organisations to write them, and to encourage their local MPs to submit them on their behalf. MPs will be encouraged to reach out to their local health and care organisations, as well as members of the public, to seek nominations.

However, we strongly recommend that you also take a proactive approach – using the time before the official launch on Wednesday 7th February to think about appropriate individuals or teams to put forward, and making contact with counterparts in partner organisations to ensure a co-ordinated approach where appropriate.  You may, for appropriate categories, like to think about whether it would be a good idea to put forward winners from your own staff awards or other awards you may have entered.

There are ten categories in which you can put forward nominations – and you can do so in as many as you like. Each category will have three specific questions to guide the nominator, and a 300 word limit for each. This is a limit only; answers may be shorter. Shortlisted nominees will be invited to the Awards Ceremony on Wednesday 4th July, 12:45 - 15:00 in the Terrace Pavilion, House of Commons, Westminster.
