Healthcare Champions Awards 2019

Does one of your healthcare professionals offer you care and support above and beyond what is expected? Nominate them as an NRAS ‘Healthcare Champion’.

Many people across the UK with RA and JIA are receiving excellent care and support in coping with their disease. The dedication and professionalism of the healthcare professionals working in this field play a vital role in getting the best outcomes for patients.

Later this year, NRAS will be holding its 6th Healthcare Champion Awards in London to celebrate the excellent work that healthcare professionals are doing across the UK and to highlight such good practice.

We need your help to find those healthcare professionals who are really championing the cause of people with RA and JIA and who maintain an excellent service despite the challenging financial environment, resource pressures and time restraints imposed on them.

You can nominate an individual or a team that you believe really deserves acknowledgement.

The closing date for nominations is Friday 7th June 2019.
