Do you have a colleague working for the health service whose leadership abilities deserve to be featured on a national stage?

If so, you have until 29 June to nominate him or her in the prestigious 2012 NHS Leadership Recognition Awards, which aim to ‘celebrate outstanding leaders’.

Seeking inspiration

There are nine categories, including an ‘award for inspiration’. An NHS leader of the year, mentor of the year and newcomer of the year are also being sought. The organisers stress that the awards are open to staff at all levels of the organisation – not just managers or clinicians.

The award winners will be announced at a special dinner on 10 December in the eighteenth century Great Hall at St Bartholomew’s Hospital, said to be the 'grandest room of its period in London'.

The awards are affiliated to the NHS Leadership Academy, which was launched in April.

Chance to be recognised

Karen Middleton (pictured above), chief health professions officer at the Department of Health, said: ‘On my travels I see some excellent leadership from allied health professionals (AHPs) - whether that's in leading service redesign, promoting innovation or enabling staff to keep on delivering high quality care through difficult times.

‘It would be fantastic to see some of these leaders recognised for what they do everyday. Do take the extra bit of time and effort to nominate people - it's important for those individuals and it's important that AHPs are recognised as excellent leaders.’
