Judging process

After the nomination window closes on 6 April 2022, nominations will be sent to the relevant NHS England and NHS Improvement teams for initial sifting.

Successful nominations at this stage will then go forward to a regional panel of senior regional NHS England and NHS Improvement 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 in on the 13 June 2022.

All regional champions will be invited to the national award ceremony in One Great George Street, Westminster, London on 6 July 2022 where our winners will be named!
