The panel of judges includes a mixture of experts and patients representatives. The awards will be presented during the NCPC’s flagship conference on March 23-24. Agenda and booking details here.
The entries across the four categories covered a wide range of activities, from teaching cookery skills to recently bereaved men to supporting professionals working in end of life care.
Claire Henry, CEO of the NCPC and Dying Matters Coalition, said: “We are thrilled that people have responded to these awards. We have always known there is a lot of great work out there, but these awards not only recognise this, but also help us to share good ideas, best practice and new initiatives.”
