Organised by Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership, with support from the Mayor of Greater Manchester, Andy Burnham and now in their second year, the Greater Manchester Health and Care Champion Awards 2019 are the only Greater Manchester-wide awards to recognise members of our paid and unpaid workforce who regularly go above and beyond to improve the health and wellbeing of the people of Greater Manchester.
Last year, we were proud that nearly half the awards were won by VCSE groups and people, but this year there have been very few nominations so far
There are ten awards recognising the different but equally important contributions people make, from colleagues working together across different organisations to improve the health and wellbeing of their residents, to students and apprentices, emerging rising stars and innovators. There is also an Outstanding Carer Spotlight Awards which will see representatives nominated by each of the ten GM boroughs to receive a spotlight award on behalf of carers of all ages in their community.
Nominations open on Monday 28th January 2019 and close on Friday 15th March 2019. The awards are free to enter and open to all individuals or teams, paid or unpaid, who work in the health or care sector in Greater Manchester or through their broader work help improve the health and wellbeing of others. Nominations can be completed by colleagues or members of the public who wish to see an individual or team’s hard work recognised.
