Welcome to the Unsung Hero Awards

The only National award for Non-Medical/ Non-Clinical NHS & Healthcare Staff and Volunteers who go above and beyond the call of duty.

The aim of the awards is to shout loud and proud about the hard work Non-Medical / Non-Clinical NHS staff do on a daily basis – work that is often overlooked, despite non-medical employees making up nearly half of the workforce.

If you believe you know incredible people who have dedicated themselves tirelessly to patient care and deserve a nation-wide announcement of their commitment to difficult work, we ask you to submit your nominations for our next Unsung Hero Award. From IT developers to HR staff, from administrative assistants to speech therapists, and even a bereavement counsellor – all non-medical roles within the NHS and healthcare sector are appreciated by the Unsung Hero Award and we cannot let their work go unnoticed.

Keep checking the website and our social media channels so you don’t miss a chance to put your nominations forward. We are excited to see who we’ll meet next year!
