The Lifetime Achievement Award

For an individual who has worked within a health or care setting for 40 years or more, who has left a legacy.

This award seeks to honour those who have given their life to the NHS, and have left it, whether just in their area or nationally, a better service for patients, and/or a better place to work for those who will follow them. We are looking for someone who has worked or volunteered within or in support of a health or care setting for 40 years or more, and who has left a lasting legacy.

This could be through:

  • championing diversity and inclusion at work and in how the NHS treats patients;
  • leading improvements in care or working conditions in challenging circumstances, or;
  • simply bringing a smile to patients’ faces day in, day out.
