Judging process

After the nomination window closes on 1 September 2020, 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 23 November 2020.

All regional champions will be invited to the national award ceremony in the House of Commons on 1 July 2021 where our winners will be named!
