Wanted: local people who go the extra mile
Find out more and nominate for the 2016 Lammy Awards here .
The Lammy Awards are NHS Lambeth CCG’s health and care awards to recognise people who go the extra mile to provide exceptional health and care support and services.
Launched by NHS Lambeth Clinical Commissioning Group in 2015, it seeks to recognise NHS and council staff, health and care teams and individuals who live and work in the borough who go the extra mile to support the health and care of others.
Local heroes make Lambeth a great place to live and work and ensure the best health outcomes for Lambeth people.
The first ever Lammy Awards ceremony will take place after the Annual General Meeting of NHS Lambeth CCG on the afternoon of Wednesday 16 September 2015 at the Imperial War Museum and will celebrate the work and achievements of our local heroes.
People living and working in Lambeth are encouraged to nominate in any of the eight award categories.
If you know an individual who provides care and support to a family member, friend or neighbour who would otherwise struggle to manage on their own due to health care needs but doesn’t get paid – nominate the person for the Unpaid Carer of the Year award. Or perhaps nominate for the Kindness award where judges will be looking for examples of how patients, carers or service users have met kindness, thoughtfulness and sensitivity in their dealings with a health and care professional or local health service.
Here’s the full list of categories:
• Unpaid Carer of the Year
• The Putting Patients First Award for healthcare professionals
• The Innovation in Lambeth Award
• The Award for Best Use of Patient Experience
• The Working Together Award
• The Outstanding Contribution Award
• The Lifetime Achievement Award
• The Kindness Award
All nominations need to be submitted by Friday 21 August 2015 and will be shortlisted by the judging panel made up of senior and influential figures from the health and care sector. Entrants for all awards will be judged on their commitment to the CCG values and vision.
