The People’s Award for Dignity in Care has been created to recognise the brilliant work that health and social care staff do.
Anyone employed in the care profession is eligible to enter the award providing they have gone the extra mile to ensure dignity and respect in any area of health and social care.
Ten regional finalists will be selected to go through to the final in July where the winner and runners up will meet Sir Michael Parkinson and the minister for care services Phil Hope.
Parkinson, the ambassador for dignity in care, said: “The People’s Award for Dignity in Care is a great way for us to recognise the dedication of health and care staff treating people with the dignity and respect they deserve.”
The nominations are now open for the public to put forward health and social care workers for the award. Members of staff can also nominate their colleagues if their nomination is supported by a member of the public.
You can nominate here or by calling 0870 000 1100.
The deadline for nominations is the 6 March.
