Make a Nomination

There are 10 awards recognising the different but equally important contributions of our health and care champions; from volunteers to students and apprentices, from established leaders to new and emerging stars.

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, unless stated otherwise. Please make sure to refer to the criteria highlighted in each nomination form when completing your nomination as this will be used in the shortlisting process.

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

Our nomination guidance is here to help with any issues you may have completing the forms.

Nominations must be received by the deadline of 15th March 2019. All nominations will then be reviewed by a nomination panel, and all shortlisted nominees will be invited to attend the awards event on Thursday 4th July.

Outstanding Carer Spotlight Awards

There are thousands of unwaged carers across Greater Manchester and this special award seeks to shine a spotlight on the incredible contribution of our young and adult carers.

We are working with carers organisations across Greater Manchester to invite representatives from each of our ten boroughs to attend the awards and receive a spotlight award on behalf of carers of all ages in their community.

As vital members of our workforce, you may also wish to nominate an unwaged carer for any of the ten awards above.
