We are delighted to announce the launch of the Our Health Heroes Awards.
Skills for Health are looking for those extra-special people who put patient care first, strive to keep their team motivated and are true #OurHealthHeroes to the healthcare sector.
Working in partnership with National Skills Academy for Health and UNISON, the Our Health Heroes Awards have been created to acknowledge the significant contribution made by the support workforce, those who play a crucial role in delivering patient care on the front line.
The aim of the Our Health Heroes awards is to celebrate the 798,600 people across the UK health sector who work in roles such as healthcare assistants, assistant practitioners, porters, cleaners, caterers, maintenance workers and administrative staff, by encouraging colleagues, team leaders and supervisors to share their stories and give them the recognition they deserve.

Entrants can be put forward by their line manager, supervisor, UNISON branch or colleague. A short online application form needs to be completed, after ensuring the nominee is happy to be put forward.
