Quality in Care award deadline looms

By Editor
4th July 2018

The deadline to nominate a healthcare professional for a major award is looming. 

Colleagues are being encouraged to submit an entry to the Quality in Care Diabetes (QiC) awards by Friday, July 13. There are only three categories left to enter, as the other 12 have already closed.

The coveted Healthcare Professional of the Year award recognises diabetes healthcare professionals based in the UK or Ireland who have succeeded in raising standards of care over and above their day to day role.

The nominee’s information will be posted online for the public vote within a specific time frame. The top five nominations will then be reviewed by an independent judging panel made up of senior judges and chairs who will make the final decision on who receives the award. You may not nominate yourself

The judges will be looking for evidence of changes in practice in 2017, initiated and led by the nominee, demonstrating positive outcomes in care and clear benefits for diabetes service users and/or their families and carers.

Supported by the Primary Care Diabetes Society (PCDS), the Outstanding Educator in Diabetes prize will be presented to an individual who is based in the UK or Ireland, who has delivered excellence in education, in a specialist or community setting.

The third and final award, which is still available to enter, is the People’s Award. It recognises someone special who has supported or cared for people with diabetes last year.

The QiC programme recognises, rewards and shares innovative practice which has demonstrated quality in diabetes management, education and services for people with diabetes and/or their families.

The winners will be announced on October 18 at the Sanofi headquarters in Guildford.
