Our Health Heroes awards 2017

Fri 25 Aug 2017

The Our Health Heroes Awards, which celebrate the exception contribution of the healthcare workforce in England, are back for 2017. 

Following the success of the inaugural awards in 2016, this year we will recognise the hard work of even more of England’s Healthcare Heroes. Whether they’re support workers, apprentices, integrated teams or workforce planners, we don’t want their work to go unnoticed.

MiP strongly supports the awards, which are run by Skills for Health and sponsored by NHS England, Health Education England and many other NHS organisations.

We’re looking for teams and individuals who work in the health sector, whether voluntary, private or public, who go above and beyond the call of duty, are creative and innovative in their roles, and deserve a big thank you.

You can nominate for any category, but we particularly encourage MiP members to submit nominatations for the following categories:

  • The Integrated Team of the Year Award, sponsored by NHS Improvement, which celebrates teams who help to deliver person-centred, integrated care across professional, organisational and/or sector boundaries. We’re looking for teams who have had a positive impact on patient experience and service improvements.
  • Workforce Planning Team of the Year Award, sponsored by NHS England, celebrates excellence in integrated workforce planning. We’re looking for teams who have succeeded in identifying innovative and cost-effective solutions to address workforce or organisational issues and deserve a big thank you.

The nomination process is really simple and easy to use – just visit the Our Health Heroes web page, select the category you would like to nominate for and complete the short online application form. Nominations close on 15 September 2017, so don’t hang around if there’s someone who really deserves some extra appreciation.
