Nominations are now open for the first ever Greater Manchester Health and Care Champion Awards.
The awards will see Greater Manchester’s health and care champions; from doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, social workers and pharmacists, to care workers, unpaid carers, apprentices and volunteers, receive the recognition they deserve for really making a difference in our communities.
The Greater Manchester Health and Care Champion Awards 2018 are the first in the city-region to recognise members of our paid and unpaid health and care workforce who regularly go above and beyond to improve the health and wellbeing of the people of Greater Manchester.
Award categories include ‘Outstanding Carer’, ‘Apprentice of the Year’, ‘Dedication to volunteering’ and the ‘People’s Champion’.
The awards are open to all individuals or teams, paid or unpaid, who work in the health or care sector in Greater Manchester.
Nominations can be completed by members of the public who wish to see an individual or team’s hard work recognised.
Nominations can be completed online by visiting www.gmchampionawards.co.uk and must be returned before the deadline of 13 April 2018.
The awards are organised by Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership, the body overseeing devolution of the area’s health and social care budget, with support from the Mayor of Greater Manchester, Andy Burnham.
The winners will be announced at a sponsored event in July.
