Lammy Awards: health and care support

Do you know someone who goes the extra mile to provide exceptional health and care support? Make sure they’re recognised and nominate them for a Lammy Award today!

Launched by NHS Lambeth Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) in 2015, the Lammy Awards are health and care awards set up to recognise people they seek to recognise NHS and council staff, health and care teams and individuals who live and work in the borough of Lambeth.

Local heroes make Lambeth a great place to live and work and ensure the best health outcomes for Lambeth people. We invite people living and working in Lambeth to nominate in any of the nine 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
  • The Putting Patients First Award for healthcare professionals
  • The Innovation in Lambeth Award
  • The Working Together Award – adult services
  • The Working Together Award – children’s services
  • The Outstanding Contribution to Primary Care Award
  • The Lifetime Achievement Award
  • The Kindness Award
  • The Lasting Impact Award

The Lammy Awards ceremony will take place on the afternoon of 5 September 2018 at the Kia Oval, London, SW11 5SS, and will celebrate the work and achievements of our local heroes. The closing date for nominations is 31 July 2018.
