Fujifilm is supporting the launch of the NHS Parliamentary Awards 2020 to give national recognition to staff who go above and beyond the call of duty. The awards were created to celebrate NHS staff, carers and volunteers for their hard work, innovative ideas and unwavering efforts to put patients first.
Members of Parliament are now searching for nominations and want to hear from outstanding individuals in their local areas who have innovated, impressed and made a real difference to how the health service provides care for patients.
Fujifilm UK is headline sponsor for the awards. Managing director Yoshitaka Nakamura said: “We have nothing but admiration for the NHS and those who work in it, alongside it and support it. As an organisation, Fujifilm exists to improve and enhance the quality of life of people around the world and we are excited to learn about and celebrate the many examples of excellence, care, compassion and innovation in the NHS that shine through MPs’ nominations.”
England’s chief midwifery officer Professor Jacqueline Dunkley-Bent, chair of the national judging panel, added: “NHS staff and volunteers make the health service what it is – the largest and greatest care team in the world that provides high quality care to patients throughout the year.
“The NHS Parliamentary Awards are a unique opportunity for MPs to highlight the amazing work done by NHS staff in their local areas, and I look forward to working with all of the judges to review the nominations we receive.”
There are ten categories, including a lifetime achievement award to honour those who have devoted their life or career to making the NHS better. Those who are shortlisted for excellence will be invited to an award ceremony in Parliament to celebrate their achievements.
