Join us in celebrating the achievements of UK BAME healthcare staff by nominating those going the extra mile in delivering exceptional care in The National BAME Health & Care Awards 2023, where nominations are now open.
Over the last three years, as the NHS has struggled to contain the pressure brought on the system by COVID-19, BAME healthcare workers have continued to work on the frontline despite great personal risk as the virus more negatively impacted their communities than others.
Nominate your BAME heroes in British healthcare
While we have found ways to manage the pandemic better, BAME health and social care workers have other battles to fight, ones that existed before the virus and continue to act as barriers to BAME staff in British healthcare. These include harassment and bullying, lack of career progression, and few targeted interventions to help BAME talent reach new heights in the sector.
The National BAME Health & Care Awards highlights BAME role models, services, and initiatives to diversify the talent pool in the UK healthcare system. The awards proudly promote and honour the staff and networks across British health and social care that aid BAME career development and forge better healthcare initiatives for underserved BAME communities.
Following the awards in 2022, the winners will have access to peer support and a professional development programme to encourage their further development as health and social care leaders. This will be the case for 2023’s winners too.
Celebrate the work of this exceptional yet underrepresented group of individuals by nominating a candidate or yourself for the 2023 awards by visiting The National BAME Health & Care Awards site here.
Amplify your support of the awards using the #BAMEHCA23 and #celebratingexcellence tags across your social media platforms.
