Health and care organisations: How to submit a nomination suggestion to MPs

The role of health and care organisations

We are asking you to call upon your local MP(s) to nominate individuals or a team in your organisation for the NHS Parliamentary Awards.

Please visit the UK Parliament website to find out who your MP is and their contact details.

How to submit your suggestions to MPs

MPs will be encouraged to reach out to their local health and care organisations, as well as members of the public, to seek nominations.

We strongly recommend that you also take a proactive approach to think about appropriate individuals or teams to put forward to your MP and to contact counterparts in partner organisations to ensure a co-ordinated approach where appropriate. You may, for suitable categories, like to think about whether it would be a good idea to put forward winners from your own staff awards or other awards you may have entered.

The nomination process has been designed to make it as easy as possible for individuals and organisations to complete, and to encourage local MPs to nominate them. There are 10 categories in which you can put forward nomination suggestions to MPs. Each category will have three specific questions to guide the nominator and there is a 300-word limit for each nomination. This is a limit only; answers may be shorter.

We have extended the deadline for nominations! The nomination process is now open from Thursday, 29 February 2024 until 12pm, Friday 26 April 2024. 

We would advise local and health care organisations to submit their nomination suggestions, via the forms below, to their MP’s at least three weeks before the nomination window closes to give MPs time to review and choose which applications to submit. Please be aware that MPs’ inboxes and offices are very busy and that emails can often get missed; be prepared to phone ahead and/or follow up to make sure you’re on their radar.

Please submit your nomination suggestion to MPs using the correct template form[s] below, so that your MP, or their staff, have all the necessary information to hand and can easily copy it into the official nomination form, which will be on a web portal.
