We’re delighted to announce the launch of Search’s first ever Healthcare Heroes Awards. Healthcare professionals positively impact people’s lives every day and it’s more important than ever to recognise and show gratitude for the amazing work they do to support those in need. 

Our Healthcare Heroes Awards aim to shine a spotlight on healthcare professionals that go above and beyond in caring for patients and supporting their workforce. We want to show appreciation for those whose expertise, resilience, and dedication to delivering great care touches the lives of others and helps to change the lives of those around them. 

“Here at Search Healthcare, we are extremely proud of our healthcare professionals. After tackling such a challenging period, there could not be a better time to celebrate truly incredible people whose hard work deserves to be recognised.” Lisa McLean, Search Health & Social Care Managing Director.

How do our 2021 Healthcare Heroes Awards work?

Whilst we know every healthcare professional plays a crucial role in supporting the lives of others, we have broken our 2021 Healthcare Hero Awards into three categories:

  • Registered General Nurse

  • Mental Health Nurse

  • Support Worker

You can nominate your healthcare hero (or yourself) if they fall under one of our three categories. Have they provided emotional support to vulnerable families? Gone above and beyond to keep people safe? Or even just given someone a reason to smile? Whatever it is, we want to hear from you. 

Anyone can send a nomination, you’ll just need to provide a case for why they (or you) deserve to be crowned a healthcare hero. With 500 words to play with, make your case as detailed as possible. 

Each entry submitted is reviewed by our expert judging panel where a shortlist will be created for each category. This will then go to a public vote with family, friends, and peers voting for the person they believe deserves the accolade.

The person with the most votes for each category will be crowned the winner and win a £1000 cash reward as a thank you for their support. 

Do you know of a Registered General Nurse, Mental Health Nurse, or Support Worker that deserves to be recognised? Help celebrate the difference our heroes make every day and nominate them here: https://www.search.co.uk/healthcare-heroes 

Please submit your entries is 1st November 2021. Good luck!
