Do you know a nurse, midwife or allied health professional (AHP) who deserves to be recognised in the Queen’s birthday honours?
The birthday honours round 2017 is now open for nominations and staff in the NHS are being encouraged to nominate nurses, midwives and AHPs for their outstanding work in health and social care.
The honours system recognises people who have made life better for others or who are outstanding at what they do. To be considered, nominees from health and social care will have made an impact on improving people’s care experience and on health outcomes for individuals or populations.
Nominees may also have made a national or international contribution to health and care services through developing new treatments, transforming services or producing high-quality research.
Nurses and midwives who have been honoured in recent years include:
- Teresa Chinn MBE, Founder of WeNurses
- Matthew Hodson MBE, COPD Nurse Consultant
- Elizabeth Atere-Roberts OBE, Older People’s Nurse Specialist
- Lesley Page CBE, President of the Royal College of Midwives
- Dame Eileen Sills DBE, Chief Nurse and Director of Patient Experience at Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS FT
- Helen Odell-Mill OBE, Professor of Music Therapy at Anglia Ruskin University
