The Rutland Snowdrop Carers Award recognises and celebrates exceptional people who work in a caring profession.
Do you know a professional health or care worker or a care team who made a real difference to someone in their final days and weeks, by going 'above and beyond' to ensure this person had the best end of life possible?
You can nominate a member of staff in a care home, a medical professional, a nurse, or social worker or a group of care professionals for the Rutland Snowdrop Carers Award.
Whilst the Care Quality Commission evaluates the quality and standards of care, the Rutland Snowdrop Carers Award focuses on the human side of care and recognises people who work in care who go 'above and beyond' their day to day work responsibilities to help improve the end of life experience of individuals and their families. The Award celebrates people who work in care who show true compassion and understanding and who are able to make a positive difference to those they care for.
* If you would like to nominate an individual or a team of care workers, please ensure that that you have received permission before submitting any of their personal details (such as their name and contact details) to us.
