Who is your VIP?

Do you know someone who has made a real difference to BCHC and our work to help care for our communities?

We are calling on the public and our partners to nominate those who have gone that extra mile for our next Values in Practice (VIP) Awards.

As this has been such a challenging year, we have added in extra categories for this round so more people can be recognised for their outstanding contribution to caring for, or supporting the caring of local people.

If you know someone who has gone above and beyond, been an innovator, a motivator or just a plain hard worker, let them know how much their efforts have been appreciated.

Award trophy

Voting for the 2021 awards closes on July 30. The ceremony to announce the winners will take place in September.

You can enter individual members of BCHC staff, teams, or volunteers.

Each nomination can be entered in up to two categories.

We will publish a list of all those nominated, A shortlist of finalists, chosen by the judging panel, will then be announced ahead of the awards evening.
