Nominate your 2021 Health Hero by completing the below form.

The Our Health Heroes Awards 2021, brought to you by Skills for Health, celebrates the unsung heroes of the UK’s health sector. 1.7 million people are working in the health sector in the UK and these awards aim to recognise the significant contribution they make – whether they are support workers, apprentices, integrated teams or organisations. We want to ensure their work doesn’t go unnoticed. Employers, colleagues and peers can all nominate someone they think is deserving of an Our Health Heroes Award.

The deadline to make your nomination is the October 25th 2020. Finalists and winners will then be decided by an expert panel of judges, with individual award categories being open to a public vote later in the year. The awards ceremony will take place in Spring 2021 at London’s Science Museum where finalists and winners will be presented with their award.

A few pointers:

  • Each nomination must be submitted on a separate form
  • Incomplete forms will not be considered
  • For partiality when judging, we remove nominee identifiers, so we request these you refer to the nominee in the third person in your submission.
This award is aimed at NHS operational support staff up to band 5. Non-NHS, Care and Independent staff can submit nominations for the Independent and Social Care Worker of the Year Award or the Outstanding Contribution Award both with no banding limits.
