The Greater Manchester Health and Care Champion Awards 2019

7th March 2019

Is there a nurse or doctor who’s gone above and beyond the call of duty for you? Or perhaps a carer of your elderly parent who’s worth their weight in gold to you?

Or maybe it’s a colleague whose commitment to their job, in improving life for others, leaves you feeling inspired?

Whoever it is, wouldn’t it be great if you had a way of saying thank you that would last a lot longer than a box of chocolates (- and would be a lot healthier! )

Well you’ve now got a chance to do just that with this year’s Greater Manchester Health and Care Champion Awards.

The awards are back for the second year running to recognise the unsung heroes who are really making a difference in our communities to improve the health and wellbeing of local people.

There are ten awards recognising the different contributions people make, from colleagues working together across different organisations to improve the health and wellbeing of their residents, to students and apprentices, rising stars and innovators.

Nominations open on Monday 28th January 2019 and close on Friday 15th March 2019. The awards are open to all individuals or teams, paid or unpaid, who work in the health or care sector in Greater Manchester or through their broader work help improve the health and wellbeing of others.

Nominations can be completed by colleagues or members of the public who wish to see an individual or team’s hard work recognised.

Find more information about the awards and how to nominate at www.gmchampionawards.co.uk. Completed nomination forms should be returned to gm.awards@nhs.net.

A shortlist of nominees will be announced in April and invited to attend an event on Thursday 4th July 2019, where the winners will be announced.

The awards are organised by Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership, with support from the Mayor of Greater Manchester, Andy Burnham. They are free to apply for and free to attend for shortlisted nominees.
