AWARD Categories & SPONSORS
The Health Care Team Award
We want to hear about teams working together to deliver improved patient care. They can be from any sector but must demonstrate impact, very strong team working, strong communication, and the ability to work across organisational boundaries.
The Care Hero Award
This award recognises that all our care workers in Worcestershire are heroes. Care workers make a difference to people’s lives every day and this award celebrates that. Do you know a care worker who has worked hard to enable someone to live an independent, safe and fulfilled life? Have they helped to change someone’s life for the better? It is these everyday stories about how our care workers make a difference (big or small) that the judges want to hear.
The Care Home Worker Award
This award recognises the contribution of an individual home care worker who strives to improve the delivery of care in the care home sector through developing ways to enhance nursing care. This person must demonstrate outstanding levels of commitment to care and put the person being cared for at the heart of what they do.
The Care Trainer Award
This award is for outstanding work in care training. The judges want to hear about how the training adapted to meet the needs of service, about the quality of service given and the effectiveness of new training.
The Health Care Employer Award
This award goes to the health care employer who can demonstrate strong commitment to employees without diminishing the care they provide. The winner will have a strong and loyal workforce, who feel valued and recognised for the contributions they make.
Domiciliary Care W orker Award
This award is about celebrating the important work that the third sector and community teams do in health and care. Are you, or do you know someone who is; doing something new, something bold or different? Something new to you, new to the sector or a new way of tackling an age-old problem? Or do you know someone who just does what they do really, well?
The Good Nurse Award
We are looking for a health care professional who demonstrates an innovative and caring approach to their work. This person must demonstrate outstanding levels of commitment to patient care and put the patient at the heart of what they do. Entrants can be from any health care profession, and can work anywhere, from community care to surgical theatres.
Adolescent and Child Health Care Award
This award is open to an organisation, department and or individual carer/nurse/doctor/charity who specialises in the care and treatment of children and adolescents within Worcestershire. This can range from specialist paediatrics, mental health, social, emotional or behavioural support, along with those who offer assessments and intervention.
The Dementia Carer Award
This award recognises the contribution of an individual care worker who strives to improve the delivery of care for those suffering with dementia. This person must demonstrate outstanding levels of commitment to care and put the person being cared for at the heart of what they do.
The Palliative/ End of Life Award
An award for an individual or team that recognises how choices made by the person being cared for and their family is central to the service and care that is delivered. This involves reflecting fully on what is important to the person at the end of their life. The judges will be looking for a carer or team who demonstrate what it takes to support clients and their families with care as well as psychological, social and spiritual support.
The Mental Health Award
This award is open to a department or individual carer/nurse/doctor who specialises in the care and treatment of mental health in Worcestershire. Good mental health is now recognized as a vital component to good overall health and we would like to hear how the care and support in this sector has improved the lives of the individual and their families.
GP Practice of the Year Award
We are looking for a GP practice in Worcestershire that stands out for the level of care they provide. Have you received great service? Has a doctor or practice nurse gone above or beyond the call of duty, or has the receptionist always greeted you with a smile and a friendly word? This award recognises the contribution of everyone in the GP practice in providing a good service to patients, where staff have gone the extra mile when treating you or someone you know.
