Judging process

After the nomination window closes at midday on 2 May 2023, nominations will be sent to NHS England for initial sifting.

Successful nominations at this stage will then go forward to a regional panel of senior regional NHS England representatives.

The regional panels will each choose one nomination in each category to go forward to the national judging panel – these regional champions will be announced on 14 June 2023.

All regional champions will be invited to the national award ceremony in the Queen Elizabeth II Centre, Westminster, London on 5 July 2023 where our winners will be named.
