NHS Heroes is an exciting new recognition scheme designed to
celebrate the extraordinary work that staff in the NHS carry out
NHS Heroes gives everyone in England the chance to acknowledge NHS
staff. For the first time, patients, their friends and families,
work colleagues and professional peers can nominate their
NHS heroes and celebrate their achievements on a national
You don't need to save lives to be a hero - you can be nominated
for all kinds of reasons. After all, it's often the smallest, most
considerate things that go beyond expectations and make a real
difference to people's lives
Anyone in the NHS family can be nominated as an NHS Hero for
anything that demonstrates real commitment and compassion in NHS
care or support work.
We are inviting nominations of clinical and non-clinical staff
within the NHS. Anyone - patients, NHS staff and members of the
public - can nominate their NHS Hero.
You can nominate your personal NHS Heroes online at www.nhsheroes.com
All nominations will then be collated by NHS North of England, and
cascaded to local organisations for
validation and approval via clustered SHAs.
Local organisations will be asked to verify nominations for
accuracy and professional appropriateness.
All those nominated will receive a certificate.
