Leader of the Year Award 2019


There is 1 week left to nominate leaders you believe are transforming care through the leadership approach they take.

This is a news item supporting nominations for the Leader of the Year Award in the Scottish Health Awards 2019. The award is sponsored by NHS Education for Scotland.

Here at project lift we all about putting people at the heart of leadership in Health and Care, and connecting those who believe this is how we transform care.  We recognise the importance and impact of sharing stories, of challenge and success, and this is an opportunity for you to share the story of a leader you believe is making a difference with their leadership approach.

A little more about the Award:


This award is for an individual working within NHS Scotland who demonstrates outstanding leadership qualities.

Leaders are a key part of the NHS Scotland workforce and play their part in taking forward changes in service and the way things are done which are better for, staff, patients and their families.

This award aims to recognise leaders who are outstanding in the work they do to make change happen and can work with others to improve and make things better.

It’s your chance to nominate individuals who lead by example encouraging others to improve services for the future and put quality at the heart of everything that they do.

Nominations will be accepted for an individual working in an NHS, a Health and Social Care Partnership or a Local Authority environment (delivering integrated health and social care services).

Please note that teams or groups cannot be nominated for this award. If you want to nominate a team or a group, why not nominate them for ‘Top Team’.*
