Judges

Our esteemed panel of judges are made up of leaders from the nursing and wider healthcare sector alongside a number of past award winners

The Nursing Times Awards pride themselves on their rigorous judging process, where every entry is read by our panel of 70+ judges before creating a shortlist. Every shortlisted entrant will then get a chance to attend a judging day between Monday 7 September to Monday 14 September to pitch face-to-face to our panel of judges on why they should win. 

The judges dedicate their time and energy to the awards, with many returning to help us every year. We just want to say a huge thank you to our judging panel for their hard work and commitment. 

Take a look at the 2020 judging panel below.
