How To Nominate


The Unsung Hero Awards celebrate the incredible work of non-medical NHS professionals that takes place across the whole country. The Awards take place annually and are designed to reward the amazing non-medical staff whose hard work, dedication and commitment often go unnoticed. Our award categories celebrate the significant contribution made by individuals and teams for the benefit of patients.

The call for entries commences in September and the closing date for submission is 16 November. The shortlist will then be announced on 7 January 2018.

The Unsung Hero Awards entry process is simple and free for all.

Anyone can nominate a non-medical NHS worker, volunteer, or team who they believe is an Unsung Hero/Unsung Heroes - we believe anyone who has dedicated themselves to patient care deserves a nomination.

Please submit your nomination by completing the entry form with as much detail as possible, including why you think your nominee should win an Unsung Hero Award. You will be able to add further submissions once submitted.

Please ensure that you read the terms and conditions before submitting a nomination.
