Now open for entries!
All of us at Nursing Times are delighted that you are considering entering the Nursing Times Awards 2015. These prestigious awards seek to showcase the superb innovations that are shaping and improving nurse-led care in the NHS and independent healthcare providers.
Every year, we receive hundreds of entries that prove nurses are continuing to improve the treatment and care they provide for their patients. In times when we hear much about the need for efficiency savings, it is even more important to highlight those nurses who are not just doing things to save money, but are doing things that are making life better for their patients.
Nurses (and the multidisciplinary teams they work with) are putting patients and service users at the centre of the care they provide. They are redesigning their services, redeploying their resources and ensuring that patient outcomes, safety and experience are paramount.
The Nursing Times Awards seek to demonstrate just how great an impact these initiatives can have, and to hold them up as examples other organisations can imitate.
So if you’re doing something different, if you have evidence of how your innovation is having a positive impact on patients, then click on the relevant categories and enter today to tell us – and other nurses – about the fantastic work you are doing.
It’s so easy (and free) to enter – all it takes is some time. And we think that is time well spent, because the Nursing Times Awards are not only an excellent way to benchmark your work and highlight your success, but can also really boost the morale of your team as you reflect on your achievements. Don't just take my word for it, have a look here to see what former winners and finalists have said about the experience of being part of the Nursing Times Awards.
There are 20 categories to enter this year, including the HRH The Prince of Wales Award for Integrated Approaches to Care.
Don't keep your achievements to yourself – share them with the wider nursing profession and the healthcare community. Enter the Nursing Times Awards today.
Entry deadline: 17 April
