Regional winners 2020

NHS regional teams across England announced the individuals and teams chosen as regional champions in the NHS Parliamentary Awards 2020.

The champions – including NHS volunteers, patients, local council health teams and the creators of extraordinary digital innovations – will now vie with each other for a national award to be presented at a special ceremony in the Palace of Westminster in July.

The NHS Parliamentary Awards, supported by sponsorship from FujiFilm, recognises the massive contributions made by those who work in and alongside the NHS.

Launched in March, we asked MPs from across the country to find and nominate those individuals or teams they thought have made the biggest improvements to health services in their constituencies, across ten categories

From more than 700 entries submitted by almost half of all MPs in England, senior NHS experts have chosen seventy outstanding nominations, which exemplify the best of what the NHS and its partners do day in, day out.

The shortlisted nominees are listed below. Further details about each nominee can be found on the NHS Parliamentary Awards website.
