The Lammy Awards 2019
On Wednesday 4 September 2019, NHS staff, council and public service workers, volunteers and carers who have made outstanding contributions to health and social care in Lambeth were celebrated at the Lammy Awards. The event was a huge success, with over 200 people coming together to celebrate the hard work in health and care across Lambeth. Thanks to all those who took the time to nominate and attend the ceremony.
For the fifth year in a row, the Lammy Awards honoured individuals and teams nominated by the public in 12 categories, with 13 award winners in total. This year we had an overwhelming number of impressive nominations from across the borough making judging an even more difficult task.
This year, as part of our mission to join up health and care services across the borough through 'Lambeth Together', there was a particular focus on collaborative working and joined-up care. Many of the awards celebrated teams and individuals who had worked well together to improve outcomes for Lambeth people.
To recognise the growing importance of work in public health at a population level, this year we introduced a new award, the Outstanding Contribution to Public Health Award. This award celebrated the contributions which help to keep the population of Lambeth fit and healthy for longer through a preventative approach.
