Nominate NHS Unsung Heroes for the 2019 Unsung Hero Awards!3rd September 2018
As we mark 5 years of the Unsung Hero Awards in 2019, we are looking back at our history of celebrating Non-Medical / Non-Clinical staff and Volunteers of the NHS…
In the last five years, the Unsung Hero Awards have granted 28 National Awards to Non-Medical/Non-Clinical staff and Volunteers from various NHS organisations. Our awards recognise NHS Unsung Heroes who help patients and colleagues on a regular basis, as well go ‘above and beyond’ in the work place. Organised by supporters of the healthcare industry, the Unsung Hero Awards showcase how Non-Medical/ Non-Clinical staff and Volunteers help develop the improve the NHS.
We’ve received 1000’s of inspiring stories over the years, with over 2000 nominations put forward for the various Award Categorises from Trusts across the UK.
The 70th NHS Anniversary was the source of much-deserved celebration for the NHS and we incorporated this special birthday at the 2018 ceremony. We held an unforgettable event, where over 350 attendees were involved, including the Lord Mayor of Greater Manchester, Andy Burnham, who has set Manchester as our choice of preference for our next Awards Ceremony.
The increase of attendees and ‘buzz’ from this year’s Awards set into motion the UHA becoming a community interest company (CIC). Moving forward, we will promote more and more examples of hard work and dedication from NHS Non-Medical/Non-Clinical staff and volunteers. We set our goal to reach over 350 attendees at the upcoming 2019 Awards, involving Trusts further across the UK and Northern Ireland and inviting socially responsible companies to support the event.
We believe that NHS Non-Medical/Non-Clinical staff and Volunteers should be given attention and appreciation, transforming the way care services are delivered. So, if you would like to be involved in this positive change in the NHS and know individuals and teams who work in roles that deserve support, you can nominate them for our awards and show how important their daily work is.
It all starts now, it all starts today! We are encouraging everyone to nominate their true Unsung Heroes! It is your chance to shout loud and proud about their hard work and maybe they will be invited to the incredible ceremony at Hilton Manchester, Deansgate, on 1st of March 2019.
Let them be first on the 1st!
This year we have 18 Awards and we are looking for Everyday Heroes, Leaders and Teams who go above and beyond their call of duty; who routinely demonstrate commitment and passion for their job and deliver an exceptional service. We are also eager to hear stories about Non-Medical/Non-Clinical staff and Volunteers dedicating their careers within the healthcare sector to serve the greater good.
To get inspired, see who was nominated in the previous years and walked away with a coveted UHA Award.
