The Excellence in Healthcare

The top causes of early death for the people in England are: heart disease, stroke, cancer, respiratory conditions, dementias, and self-harm. This award recognises individuals or teams who go above and beyond to improve outcomes and experience for patients living with and beyond these major health conditions or work to prevent them.

This could be through:

  • establishing a new process to identify and prevent major conditions earlier;
  • developing effective ways to share and spread awareness of a major health condition, or;
  • working with patients and their families to support people to stay well and recover in their own homes, and with the right support in place within their communities.
