The amazing Nursing Times Awards 2023 returned to their annual home, the JW Marriott Grosvenor House Hotel on Park Lane in London on Wednesday 25 October 2023. View the winners.

The awards brought together the nursing community to shine a light on the brightest talent in the profession and recognise those of you making nursing innovative, patient-focused and inclusive. It has never been more important to recognise the incredible contributions of you and your colleagues.

We wanted to highlight your innovation, perseverance and incredible work across 23 categories covering a wide range of nursing specialities mental health to social care to children’s services. We will recognise the individuals and teams who stand out as truly exceptional, with standout awards for Nurse of the Year, Team of the Year, Nurse Leader of the Year and new for this year, Midwife of the Year. These awards recognise those who have gone above and beyond what is expected of them in their day-to-day role.

The awards were open to entries from individuals and teams, or nominations from those who wanted to highlight a nurse or team who they believe deserves recognition. It provided a perfect opportunity to congratulate your peers, leaders and the brightest talent entering the profession.
