Health and care awards set up in Lambeth to recognise people who go the extra mile to provide exceptional health and care support, the Lammy Awards were first launched by NHS Lambeth Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) in 2015. They seek to recognise NHS and council staff, health and care teams and individuals who live and work in the borough.
The CCG states:
Local heroes make Lambeth a great place to live and work and ensure the best health outcomes for Lambeth people.
The Lammy Awards ceremony will take place on the afternoon of 4 September 2019 at the Kia Oval, London, SW11 5SS, and will celebrate the work and achievements of our local heroes.
We invite people living and working in Lambeth to nominate in any of the eight award categories.
If you know an individual who provides care and support to a family member, friend or neighbour who would otherwise struggle to manage on their own due to health care needs but doesn’t get paid – nominate the person for the Unpaid Carer of the Year award. Or perhaps nominate for the Kindness award, where judges will be looking for examples of how patients, carers or service users have met kindness, thoughtfulness and sensitivity in their dealings with a health and care professional or local health service.
Here is the full list of categories:
- Unpaid Carer of the Year (including adults and young carers)
- The Putting People First Award
- The Innovation in Lambeth Award
- The Lambeth Together Award – adult services
- The Lambeth Together Award – children’s services
- The Outstanding Contribution to Primary Care Award
- The Lifetime Achievement Award
- The Kindness Award (joint with Healthwatch Lambeth)
The closing date for nominations is 31 July 2019.

Please note: Nominations for previous Lammy Awards winners will not be considered in any category.
