The awards are to celebrate those support workers who have gone above and beyond the line of duty. Whether this is to improve patient care, lift the moral of their team/practice, or have shown extra-special personal qualities deserving of wider recognition for being exemplar employees.
Did you know that 40% of the 2.1 million people who work in the UK health sector are support workers? These roles are critical, ensuring that hospital and healthcare practices around the UK continue to run efficiently and effectively, yet they often go unnoticed. Together we want to celebrate these unsung health heroes, and are encouraging people to say thank you.
Entrants can enter the awards by being put forward by their line manager, supervisor, UNISON branch, or colleague by filling in a short online application form. A shortlist will then be drawn consisting of 24 people. Each regional winner will get a small prize and two overall winners will win a main prize.
A panel of judges will decide these 24 heroes. These will be made up of leading representatives from the healthcare sector; including Skills for Health CEO John Rogers, NSA Health Director Candace Miller, a health minister, Unison representative, NHS representative.
The 24 finalists will then go through to the final, where the public will vote for two overall winners. The voting will be carried out via the Skills for Health website portal.
Each of the heroes will receive a small prize provided by Spabreaks.com. Finalists will be presented with their awards and prizes at an awards ceremony at UNISON in London on November 29th.
