Has a nurse, midwife, health visitor or healthcare assistant made a real difference to you or a loved one? That is the question being asked for the first time across the UK by weekly nursing journal Nursing Standard.

Has a nurse, midwife, health visitor or healthcare assistant made a real difference to you or a loved one? That is the question being asked for the first time across the UK by weekly nursing journal Nursing Standard.

The Patient’s Choice Award is the latest category in Nursing Standard’s prestigious annual Nurse of the Year awards. Now in their 19th year, the awards provide a unique opportunity to highlight and reward excellent practice within the nursing profession.

“Delivering the best possible care to patients lies at the heart of all nursing,” says Nursing Standard editor, Jean Gray. “That’s why we’re so delighted to give patients the opportunity to recognise and celebrate those nurses who they feel have gone the extra mile.”

As well as appealing directly to the public, Nursing Standard is urging every organisation—whether in the NHS, the community or the independent sector—to tell their patients about this special award, encouraging them to nominate those nurses who they feel have performed beyond the call of duty. “We want to see as many nurses put forward for this award as possible,” says Nursing Standard’s editor.

The closing date for nominations for Nursing Standard’s Patient’s Choice Award is Friday February 15 2008.

To nominate a nurse, midwife, health visitor or healthcare assistant, members of the public can visit www.patients-choice.co.uk or call 020 8872 3140 to request an entry form.
