Nominations open for General Practice Nursing Awards 2018

Does a nurse at your local GP surgery deserve special praise for the excellent healthcare they consistently provide?

You can celebrate their efforts by nominating them for the General Practice Nursing Awards 2018, which are hosted by the Yorkshire & Humber General Practice Nursing Awards Committee to recognise the skills, expertise and dedication of practice nurses in our area.

Nominations are now open to members of the public and healthcare professionals alike. The deadline for nominations is 12pm on Friday 2 February.

Nominations can be sent by email to, while People’s Choice Award nominations can be sent by email to the same address or by post using the free post address ‘Freepost GPN Awards’.

There are eight award categories to choose from:

Nurses from the Vale of York are vying for nominations with colleagues from the wider Humber, Coast and Vale Sustainability Transformation Partnership (STP) area.

The shortlisted Humber, Coast and Vale nominees will be announced at a ceremony on Wednesday 28 February at the Mercure Hull Grange Park Hotel in Willerby, East Yorkshire.

An awards ceremony for the wider Yorkshire and Humber region will then take place in March at a date and venue yet to be confirmed.

Michelle Carrington, NHS Vale of York Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) Executive Director of Quality and Nursing, said: “The General Practice Nursing Awards are a fantastic opportunity to celebrate the important contribution practice nurses provide to patients, families and carers across the Vale of York.

“These new awards are specific to this group of nurses to ensure equity of recognition and a chance to shine. If you wish to nominate a practice nurse for any of the varied awards please take a few moments to do so and give them the recognition they deserve."
