The NHS is one of our nation’s proudest achievements and for over 70 years dedicated NHS staff have been there for us all. Whether they are doctors, pharmacists and nurses on the frontline, world leading scientists, hard-working cleaners, much needed clerical staff, caring porters or our amazing volunteers, without the NHS staff there wouldn’t be an NHS.
All our NHS staff, volunteers and society’s carers deserve recognition, but there are many that go above and beyond the call of duty to make the NHS a better service – with hard graft, exciting new ideas and simply by putting patients first.
Last year over 250 Members of Parliament nominated an individual or organisation for an award. We received over 600 nominations from MPs.
This year, in the international year of the nurse and midwife we want even more MPs to get involved and show their local NHS staff, volunteers and carers what they mean to them and the communities they serve each day. So, we are delighted to announce the NHS Parliamentary Awards 2020.
Nominations open on 4 March 2020 and close on 1 May 2020.
The winners will be presented with their awards in parliament on 1 July 2020.

- The Excellence in Healthcare Award
