Excellence in Public Participation AwardsIndividual Participation AwardsInsight and Feedback Awards People's Awards

The NHS England Excellence in Participation Awards celebrate the outstanding contributions of people and organisations across the country who are transforming people’s lives, improving health and care services and putting patients, service users, carers and communities at the very heart of health and care. The awards will contribute to a culture of excellence and achievement across individual and public participation in health which can then be celebrated and shared nationally.

There are a range of awards all designed to recognise and celebrate outstanding achievements by people and organisations. A special People’s Awards category will recognise innovative approaches to involving children and young people, promoting volunteering and individual contribution. The final judging panel will include NHS staff, patients, service users, carers and/or the public.

See the British Sign Language (BSL) information video about these awards and how to apply.  The BSL version was produced by btm, www.btm.org.uk
