The challenges of this difficult year have shone a light on the important work of our health and care professionals as they continue to fight through an unprecedented public health situation. 

Here at the Bucks Free Press, we want to make sure their contribution does not go unrecognised - so we have launched the Buckinghamshire Health and Social Care Awards. 

Inspirational workers have been on the frontline at the heart of our communities day and night, selflessly supporting people across the county.

Communities have clapped and shown their appreciation where they can, but these awards are an opportunity to highlight the outstanding achievements of talented teams and dedicated individuals and to show support for unsung heroes from across the health and social care spectrum.

Each day this week, we will be shining a spotlight on a different category that you can nominate a team or individual for. 

For the full list of categories and how to nominate, go to

The Health Care Team Award 

We want to hear about teams working together to deliver improved patient care. 

They can be from any sector but must demonstrate impact, very strong team working, strong communication, and the ability to work across organisational boundaries.

We want to hear why they should win, how they embody collaboration and team work, and what their impact has been. 

We also want to hear about and celebrate their achievements. 

If you think you know a team that deserves this award, get nominating now!
