The Excellence in Urgent and Emergency Care Award

To an individual or team that has made improvements to how the NHS treats people in life or death situations.

This award seeks to celebrate the amazing work of our emergency care services across the country, whether that’s A&E doctors and nurses, Ambulance Service paramedics and technicians, out-of-hours GPs or the 999 and 111 teams who take calls from worried members of the public. We are looking specifically for nominees who have made improvements to how the NHS treats people who need urgent care in their areas.

This could be through:

  • developing new protocols, including working with other agencies and/or volunteers to improve response times or increase capacity in A&E;
  • increasing the effectiveness of care, or;
  • putting in place different services which are more convenient for people needing urgent treatment.
