Nominations open for the Sheffield General Practice Nurse and Health Care Assistant Awards 2020
20 November 2019

Nurses and health care assistants work in GP practices and are an essential part of the primary care team. They plan and provide nursing care, treatment and health education to patients of all ages.

To celebrate and thank our brilliant practice nurses and health care assistants across Sheffield, we have created The Sheffield General Practice Nurse and Health Care Assistant Awards.

Do you know a practice nurse or health care assistant that has gone above and beyond or made a difference to you? If so we think they deserve recognition and we encourage you to nominate them for an award.

There are six individual award categories highlighting the differing impact general practice nurses and health care assistants can make in delivering high quality care.
