2020 winners announced
On Wednesday 2 and Thursday 3 December, Nursing Times brought together over 500 nurses from across the health and care community at a virtual workforce summit and awards.
The virtual summit attracted attendees from across NHS, acute, community, mental health and independent healthcare providers. Delegates joined us at the summit to build their network, share challenges with peers and to be empowered to support their workforce.
Finalists and members of the nursing community attended a glittering virtual awards ceremony covering 15 categories recognising organisations going above and beyond to recruit and retain their nursing workforce. There were deserving winners from organisations across the UK.
Editor of Nursing Times and the host of the awards, Steve Ford said:
“The nursing workforce has been in the spotlight like never before due to the challenge posed by Covid-19, coming after the busy winter months and, of course, on top of existing staffing pressures. During the first wave, many staff were redeployed, former registrants returned and students joined the frontline, all of which took a huge amount of planning and organisation.
“Much has been learnt, tried and adopted. Now, unfortunately, services are in the midst of a second wave, facing fresh pressures and uncertainty, but with tired staff and the added challenge of so-called ‘long Covid’ to contend with. Nursing Times appreciates the efforts of the entire nursing workforce wherever you are and whatever you do.
“It has been a year like no other. Congratulations to all our award winners and award finalists. You really do have much to celebrate for what you have achieved this year.”
We would like to say a big thank you to our valued sponsors and speakers for joining us in a virtual world. Without their support, the event would not be possible. Thank you to everybody who joined us at the summit and awards during this unusual time. And a huge well done to our incredible winners and all those who entered the awards this year.
