Eastbourne MP Caroline Ansell wants local people to come forward and nominate for this year’s NHS Parliamentary Awards that recognises staff who have gone above and beyond the call of duty.

The awards offer a chance to celebrate NHS staff, carers and volunteers for all the hard work they do to provide excellent healthcare and Caroline is a regular supporter of them

This year there are 10 categories, including the Lifetime Achievement Award, and a new award, The Excellence in Education and Training Award, which will celebrate new, innovative approaches to recruiting and retaining NHS staff from a range of backgrounds.

The Parliamentary Awards 2024 launched on 29th February 2024, and all those who make the national shortlist will be invited to an award ceremony in Westminster in July to celebrate their fantastic achievements .

“These annual awards are a chance for communities to say thank you to those NHS staff who have been brilliant,” said Caroline.

“It could be an individual or a team who have gone beyond the call of duty to help their patients either in a hospital setting or another treatment centre.

“I look forward to Eastbournians contacting me with their nominations but remember to please use the online form available at the link below.”

Since the awards began in 2018, over 450 Members of Parliament have nominated an individual or organisation for an award.

In 2023 alone, over 280 MPs nominated over 750 individuals and organisations for an award.
