Do you know a support worker in the NHS who deserves national recognition for their dedication?

Perhaps you’re one yourself?

Then the Our Health Heroes awards, organised by Skills for Health and the National Skills Academy for Health, could be just the thing for you

The awards recognise and promote the significant contribution support workers make in delivering patient care and celebrate those who take special pride in their roles.

So if you work in the health service and know anyone whose contribution to your team or department deserves special recognition, ask their manager to nominate them to be one of Our Health Heroes.

Nominations close on 16 September.

UNISON has been a key sponsor of the awards since they launched in 2016. This year, we are sponsoring the Operational Services Support Worker of the Year award.
