There is still time to nominate an outstanding individual or team for Our HEAT Awards (Healthcare Education and Training) which recognise and celebrate the importance of education, training, leadership and workforce planning in delivering high-quality compassionate healthcare in the NHS.
Nominations can be made through www.hee.nhs.uk/heatawards where full details of all the awards can found as well as who can be nominated. The closing date is midnight on 5 April. The shortlist will be announced on 20 May and the winners will be revealed at an awards event that will be held on 18 July in London.
The awards are looking for examples of inspiring trainees, students and apprentices as well as shining examples of leaders within the NHS.
They also seek to showcase exemplary examples of workforce planning, the NHS Constitution in action, training and digital/technology enhanced learning (TEL) innovation. There are also awards for the best organisation to work and train with and an award celebrating transformation.
The HEAT Awards bring together a range of local and regional awards schemes that have been previously run by HEE and NHS Leadership Academy. There are 13 categories in which you can put forward nominations – and you can do so in as many as you like.
