Kate Granger Awards

There's four weeks left to nominate a person, team or organisation that has made a significant difference to patient care.

Entries for the Kate Granger Compassionate Care Awards will close to submissions on 29 May 2015.

The award celebrates people that have made a positive difference to patient care. It is named after Kate Granger, the terminally ill doctor who has worked tirelessly to raise awareness around compassion in the NHS through her #hellomynameis social media campaign. 

The judges are looking for an individual, team or organisation that has made a fantastic difference to patient care. In particular, they want evidence of:

  • An ambitious and innovative way of delivering care;
  • High-quality management and leadership;
  • An approach that can be easily measured and have a real impact;
  • How the approach has made a difference to patient care;
  • How it makes a difference in the long term;
  • How easily it can be replicated in other organisations.

The awards will be presented at Expo 2015 in September. If you would like more information, click here
